Police Disciplinary Hearings
If you are a police officer who needs legal representation during a disciplinary hearing on actions on or off duty that are deemed improper, the solicitors at JMW are here for you. We have thorough and up-to-date knowledge of police protocol and operations and can advise you on how to respond and behave during a hearing.
If your matter is urgent, use our 24-hour legal helpline 0800 804 8186 for access to expert legal advice whenever you need it.
Disciplinary Hearings Involving On-Duty Actions
When a police officer behaves inappropriately or commits a crime, such as serious fraud, bribery or corruption, while on duty, they are likely to be interviewed under caution as part of a criminal investigation. Our solicitors have advised police officers in many police law and professional misconduct cases.
Early intervention and assistance can often result in the discontinuance of an enquiry; however, if the matter develops into disciplinary proceedings or criminal prosecution, you can be assured that JMW will protect your legal position.
Disciplinary Hearings Involving Off-Duty Matters
We offer a full range of specialist legal services to police officers who are the subject of enquiries or legal matters relating to off-duty matters. Our services include advice on:
- Driving offences
- Criminal defence
- Reputational management
- Personal insolvency
- Personal injury
- Clinical negligence
- Wills and estate planning
These matters are not normally funded by the Police Federation; however, we are able to offer discounted rates to serving police officers, special constables, community support officers (PCSO) and retired police officers (NARPO). Legal expenses insurance may also be available in certain cases.

Our solicitors understand that these incidents can have a serious impact on your working life and will ensure your employment rights remain intact during proceedings. Representation from JMW is provided by former police officers, criminal defence solicitors and other lawyers recognised nationally as leading individuals in their respective areas of law.
