The review of training has involved contacting other forces and court chambers to enquire about the availability of various training options.  We are currently liaising with the MPS over the provision of the facilities used for misconduct hearings. We expect to have an  agreed  training package available for the commencement of the independent members new term of office on 1 January 2014.
