UK cops must declare gifts and 2nd jobs

| 12/02/2013

(BBC): Chief constables in England and Wales will have to declare all gifts and hospitality on a public register under new anti-corruption measures. The move is part of a package of measures aimed at rooting out police corruption and misconduct announced by Home Secretary Theresa May. All officers will have to declare any second jobs they do. The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) will also be expanded to investigate all serious complaints. And there will also be a national register of officers who have been struck off in a bid to stop dismissed officers being recruited by other forces.

The move came on the day officers from Operation Elveden – the Metropolitan Police investigation into alleged corrupt payments to public officials – made their 60th arrest.
