PART 1Conditions

1.—(1) The conditions referred to in regulations 39 and 40 are—

(a)the report, complaint or allegation indicates that the conduct of the designated person concerned is of a serious nature and that an imprisonable offence may have been committed by the designated person concerned; and

(b)the conduct is such that, were the case to be referred to a hearing under regulation 38 and the members of the panel conducting that hearing were to find that the conduct failed to meet the appropriate standard, they would in the opinion of the appropriate officer be likely to recommend the dismissal of the designated person concerned from his post in the police support staff; and

(c)the report, complaint or allegation is supported by written statements, documents or other material which is, in the opinion of the appropriate officer, sufficient without further evidence to establish on the balance of probabilities that the conduct of the designated person concerned did not meet the appropriate standard; and

(d)the appropriate officer is of the opinion that it is in the public interest for the designated person concerned to cease to be a member of the police support staff without delay.

(2) In this paragraph an “imprisonable offence” means an offence which is punishable with imprisonment in the case of a person aged 21 or over.
