We have already announced a package of integrity measures to tackle misconduct and promote transparency and a more open culture in the police.
Under these measures, the College of Policing will publish a new code of ethics and create a single set of professional standards.
This, alongside police and crime commissioners holding forces to account, will ensure the public can have full faith in the police and strengthen the link between officers and the people they serve.
A group of influential MPs has called for police officers guilty of serious misconduct to have their pensions docked. The Home Affairs Select Committee recommended the measure as a way of tackling rare cases of "corruption and incompetence".
