IPCC Recommendations


Following the introduction of regulations to support the Anti–social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act, we publish our IPCC learning recommendations and responses on our website.

What are learning recommendations?

The IPCC makes learning recommendations to the police, or other relevant organisations, after IPCC investigations. Recommendations can include improving practice, updating policy or changes to training. They also make recommendations after making decisions on certain types of appeals.

Who are the recommendations for?

Recommendations may be made to the police, or police and crime commissioners as a result of supervised, managed or independent investigations and certain types of appeal.
Hertfordshire Constabulary has a legal duty to respond recommendations. While we do not have to carry out the recommendation, we do have to say what action we have taken or plan to take, or why we have not taken, or do not plan to take, any action. We must provide responses to the IPCC within 56 days (unless there are valid reasons not to).
We will publish these responses on this section of our website (unless there are valid reasons why they cannot be published), and they are also published on the Web Link IPCC website.
