The Confidential Reporting Policy has been devised to maintain public trust and confidence in the rule of law and to preserve the health, safety and welfare of members of staff. It is intended to encourage staff to expose any wrong-doings of  which they become aware in the knowledge and understanding that their concerns will be thoroughly investigated without fear of reprisal. It lays down procedures for enabling members of staff to disclose their concerns confidentially and promises support for them and any other person who takes part in the process of disclosure. It also sets out the responsibilities of those who receive such information.
