Our officers are required to work within the guidelines of a code of conduct set by the Home Office and breaches of this code are taken very seriously.

The Organisational Learning, Culture and Ethics department has primary responsibility for the recording and investigation of public complaints against police officers and police staff members and for discipline matters within the force.

Additionally, the department is responsible for physical and information security, vetting and criminal records checks.

Our greatest challenge is to effectively communicate to all staff the responsibility placed upon them by the Standards of Professional Behaviour which in turn helps to maintain the public’s confidence in Derbyshire Constabulary.
