Date Published: 
June 2022

This chapter offers guidance around what to do in response to an offer of a gift, discount, or hospitality from someone outside Police. It also sets out the requirements for recording offers of gifts or hospitality in a consistent manner, and the level of approval required for different values and categories of gifts and hospitality.

The Register is maintained by the Director: Assurance and is subject to periodic scrutiny by District Commanders, Directors, members of the Executive and Police’s independent Assurance and Risk Committee. Submissions to the Gifts and Hospitality Register are audited on a regular basis by PNHQ’s Assurance Group. Submitters and their supervisors may be contacted if follow-up is required.
