This chapter, written in part by Fraser Sampson, deals with the importance of human rights policing as emphasised by the Independent Commission, and the unique progress made by the Policing Board, their human rights advisers and the PSNI in devising a code of ethics, the police’s programme of action, the human rights monitoring framework agreed by the Board and regular transparent reporting on compliance with human rights by the PSNI. The chapter sets out the elements in the human rights monitoring framework, reminds readers that the Board determined that the process of monitoring was not to be retrospective, notes the unprecedented access given to the advisers (even in the policing of public disorder), and summarises the annual human rights reports. It notes that the work done in Northern Ireland was a precedent for guidance adopted by the Association of Police Authorities in England and Wales. It also records the steps taken in regard to the registration of notifiable memberships.
