Dyma’r fersiwn wreiddiol (fel y’i gwnaed yn wreiddiol).

Investigation of complaints against officers, other than senior officers

5.—(1) If the Chief Constable determines that he is the appropriate authority in relation to a member of the police force about whose conduct a complaint has been made and who is not a senior officer, he shall record it.

(2) After doing so he shall consider whether the complaint is suitable for informal resolution and may appoint a member of the police force to assist him.

(3) If it appears to the Chief Constable that the complaint is not suitable for informal resolution, he shall appoint a member of the police force or a member of another United Kingdom police force to investigate it formally.

(4) If it appears to him that it is suitable for informal resolution, he shall seek to resolve it informally and may appoint a member of the police force to do so on his behalf.

(5) If it appears to the Chief Constable, after attempts have been made to resolve a complaint informally—

(a)that informal resolution of the complaint is impossible; or

(b)that the complaint is for any other reason not suitable for informal resolution, he shall appoint a member of the police force or a member of another United Kingdom police force to investigate it formally.

(6) A member of the police force may not be appointed to investigate a complaint formally if he has previously been appointed to act in relation to it under paragraph (4).

(7) No member of the police force may be appointed under this Article unless—

(a)where the member of the police force against whom the complaint is made is of the rank of superintendent or chief superintendent,, he is of at least one rank above the rank of that member; and

(8) Unless an investigation under this Article is supervised by the Commission under Article 9, the person appointed under paragraph (3) or (5) shall submit his report on the investigation to the Chief Constable.

(9) A complaint is not suitable for informal resolution unless—

(a)the complainant gives his consent; and

(b)the Chief Constable is satisfied that the conduct complained of, even if proved, would not justify a criminal or disciplinary charge.
