Update: Catherine Crawford Review
In November 2013 JUST wrote to West Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Mark Burns -Williamson expressing our concern over the Review of the Police Complaints Process (The Catherine Crawford Review). We called for the deadline to be delayed as it was clear that the Review was failing to engage with BME communities and police officers in West Yorkshire, despite evidence of the disproportionate and adverse impact of policing practices on this group – our request was denied. Read our letter here.
In view of the short notice, JUST has written to the PCC asking for the meeting to be postponed to a later date and requesting a longer time allocation to enable a meaningful input into the Review. We are waiting for a response and will keep our readers updated.
In the meanwhile, if you have personal experience or views on the current complaints process in West Yorkshire that you wish to share please do not hesitate to contact us at
