Show Summary Details


Deborah is the IPCC Commissioner directly responsible for the Metropolitan Police Service and City of London Police. She also carries lead Commission policy responsibility for counter terrorism, firearms, and less lethal options and represents the IPCC on the ACPO Conflict Management and Strategic Firearms Committee. In February 2006, in pursuit of greater understanding of the issues affecting the police service, she successfully completed the Firearms Gold Commanders Course. In this article, the author uses her experience investigating incidents involving police conduct during the London G20 summit protests to reflect on the ways police and IPCC may work alongside one another to respond to issues of public confidence in policing. This article is based on a speech given to the ACPO Conflict Management Conference in September 2009.
