Policies and Practice Directions

Here you will find current statements of principle providing guidance and direction to staff in respect of specific issues or pieces of legislation. Our policies and practice directions establish the expected organisational behaviour in line with organisational objectives leading to a consistent approach to decision making. They set out broad expectations and the framework from which procedure flows.

It should be noted that some of the material in this Class contains exempt information which, in the public interest, should not be published. Where this occurs the material will clearly show where information has been withheld and explain what exemption has been applied and why. Typically information may be withheld if its release would compromise the health and safety of staff, investigations and proceedings or law enforcement more generally.
