West Midlands Police and Crime Panel - Complaints and Misconduct Procedure

The West Midlands Police and Crime Panel is responsible for handling complaints about the conduct of Bob Jones - Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) and Yvonne Mosquito - Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner (Deputy PCC).

If your complaint alleges criminal conduct we will record it then refer it to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) for investigation.

Non-criminal complaints are dealt with by the Panel, usually through a process called informal resolution. This is where the Panel mediates between both parties to solve, clarify, explain or settle the matter without investigation or formal proceedings.

If you have an ongoing complaint, we would normally require that complaint process to be completed before we look into the matter.

For more information please read our Guide to Making a Complaint.

If you wish to make a complaint please download and complete a Complaint Form (attached below).

Send your completed form via:

email: wmpcp@birmingham.gov.uk

or post: WMPCP, Scrutiny Office, Council House, Victoria Square, Birmingham, B1 1BB.
