Police Accountability and Legitimacy Group (PALG)

The Police Accountability and Legitimacy Group enables external organisations and independent advisers to act as critical friends to South Wales Police, supporting the Police & Crime Commissioner in his scrutiny role, and ensuring that South Wales Police is accountable and transparent.

PALG members, who represent a variety of organisations, assist the Commissioner in proactively promoting fair treatment and legitimate practices across the South Wales Police working environment and in dealings with the communities of South Wales. The group provides independent oversight and scrutiny of South Wales Police in respect of:

  • The use of policing powers (including stop search and use of force)
  • The accessibility and transparency of the police conduct and complaints system
  • Policy, project and practice development and implementation
  • Engagement and interaction with the public
  • Fairness at work issues
  • Encouraging diversity in the workplace
  • Progress against equality objectives set as part of the Equality Act Specific Duties.

Meetings take place on a quarterly basis and are chaired by the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Chief Executive. Further information about the purpose and outcomes arising from PALG meetings can be found here.

Minutes from these meetings are available below: 

March 2019

June 2019
