The Home Secretary today announced that Tim Robinson has been appointed as non-executive commissioner to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).

Tim Robinson is a qualified chartered accountant, specialising in human resources and most recently was a partner at Accenture with responsibility for their corporate services.

The IPCC’s non-executive Commissioners have particular responsibility for providing objective oversight and accountability for the IPCC. Tim, who was appointed following a fair and open competition, will chair the IPCC’s new People and Human Resources Committee and will be a member of the Audit and Risk Committee.

Home Secretary Theresa May said:

I’m delighted to announce the appointment of Tim Robinson as non-executive commissioner at the IPCC. His 25 years experience in human resources will be vitally important as the IPCC implements its expansion programme, which will ensure that it provides the rigorous scrutiny of the police that the public expects.

Tim Robinson said:

I am very excited to be joining the IPCC as it has such a key role in maintaining public confidence in the police complaints system. I look forward to working with IPCC Commissioners and the executive as it moves forward with its ambitious programme of change and expansion.
