Police integrity is crucial if the public are to trust the police to use their powers wisely and, above all, fairly.
To help build trust and public confidence, the Police and Crime Commissioners of Warwickshire and West Mercia have set up a Trust, Integrity and Ethics Committee which will help to ensure that police officers and staff do the right thing, in the right way. The first meeting of the committee took place on Monday 22 September 2014.
The setting up of the committee followed the introduction of the Code of Ethics which was developed by the College of Policing. The Code sets out what the high standards of behaviour within policing looks like and includes practical examples for officers and staff to use in their everyday jobs.

The Committee produced its annual report in August 2017: TIE Committee Annual Report 2017
The committee, which will meet 3-4 times a year, comprises of 5 independent members.
Committee meetings are open to any member of the public to attend (excluding closed sessions).
