The Police Federation of England and Wales, which represents tens of thousands of officers, has said that the recommendations from the Home Affairs Select Committee could lead to greater confusion:
We remain to be convinced that creating a new code of ethics would be any more effective than that which already exists and one that we believe already demands the highest standards of each and every police officer.
Further, there will be considerable cost in creating yet another discipline body within the College of Policing, along with forces themselves, the IPCC and the HMIC.
Financial concerns aside, this is also likely to lead to overlaps, gaps and confusion over decision making in relation to discipline matters.
Integrity in policing is paramount, but knee jerk reaction to historic cases and those involving an extremely small minority of the 134,000 officers who police this country with absolute commitment should not dictate future policy making.
