Police staff and their families are unable to make a complaint against police under regulations imposed the Independant Police Complaints Commission.

This results in police staff having less democratic rights than every other member of the public. A son or daughter  or parnter of a member of police staff can not complain about police. Even if he/she does not work for a police force themselves. How democratic is that?

Remove this restriction and allow complaints to be judged on their own merit instead of removing people's rights.

Why is this idea important?

This restriction should not be there in the first place. All complaints should be investigated and treated on their own merits. To simply remove a section of the community from the equation is not fair or democratic.
