Public Hearings

Public Misconduct Hearings

This section provides information on both forthcoming misconduct hearings and the outcome of cases of formal misconduct proceedings.

Durham Constabulary is committed to transparency and accountability. As such we will publish the outcomes of misconduct meetings, misconduct hearings and also those who resign prior to conclusion of misconduct proceedings (where it is established that there was a case to answer). Members of the public are generally entitled to attend Gross Misconduct Hearings after application.

If you wish to attend a hearing, you must book your place in advance by sending an email to publichearings@durham.pnn.police.uk in order to register your interest. In the email you must provide:

  • Your full name
  • Date of birth
  • Home address
  • The date of the hearing you wish to attend
  • The name of the person involved.

 

Any interested members of the media must also register by sending an email to the above address.

Successful observers will receive a return email which will include information on what to do next.

Any hearing allows for a maximum of 20 observers, with allocation being on a first come basis. If you have any accessibility requirements, please let us know in your email, so we can ensure your needs are met.

Upon attending the location of the hearing, you will be required to present photographic identification, for example a driving licence or passport.

You will not be allowed admittance unless you have pre-registered. We reserve the right to restrict entry.

No filming, audio recording or taking of photographs of the proceedings will be permitted.
