Police (Northern Ireland) Act 2003

Section 17: Disqualification following removal from office

45.Paragraph 7(1) of Schedule 3 of the 2000 Act sets out various circumstances in which the Board, or a district council with the Board’s approval, may remove a person from office as a member of a DPP (e.g. conviction of a criminal offence; bankruptcy). Section 17 amends paragraph 8 of Schedule 3 to the 2000 Act to provide that someone removed from a DPP under paragraph 7(1) is disqualified from reappointment until the next local general election. This brings the arrangements for DPP membership in line with those already in place for membership of the Board.
