Director of the Police Complaints Authority David West
A new website and an information campaign aimed at promoting the services of the Police Complaints Authority (PCA) will be rolled out in the coming weeks.
This as the PCA celebrates its tenth anniversary on Tuesday.
A release on Saturday stated, “The PCA investigators will benefit from broader evidence gathering capabilities and will also be included as interested parties in coroner’s inquests.”
Director David West said he and Deputy Director Michelle Solomon-Baksh look ahead with optimism to further strengthen the legislation governing the authority.
To mark its tenth anniversary, the PCA will launch a series of initiatives aimed at increasing public trust in its operations.
It stated, “This includes improving the public’s ease of access to our complaints systems and digital upgrading of our case management systems. These on-line improvements will significantly improve the timeliness and quality of our work.”
The PCA’s first Director was Gillian Lucky, now a Court of Appeal judge. She was assisted by Deputy Director Ralph Doyle, a former Master of the High Court.
