The Home Office does not hold or collect information on the public cost when a police officer is suspended during misconduct investigations. Forces may hold this information at a local level.

The Government has introduced a number of reforms to the police complaints and discipline systems to date and is committed to completing the delivery of a package of measures designed to overhaul these systems – making them more transparent, efficient and proportionate.
