Panel of Friends

ASPS Panel of Friends

ASPS Panel of Friends is a group of trained and experienced members from which a ‘friend’ is assigned to support Superintendents/Chief Superintendents who become ‘At Risk’ and the subject of a formal investigation.

As senior operational leaders dealing with the highest levels of operational responsibility, superintendents can be placed ‘at risk’ when things go wrong.

All fully paid subscribing members of ASPS are covered by a Legal Protection Insurance. Should an ASPS member find themselves in need of advice or support in connection with any complaint or investigation into their role, initial contact for assistance should be made by contacting Stewart Carle, General Secretary on 07729 045678 or via email

For more information on ASPS Panel of Friends or if you are interested in becoming a ‘friend’, please contact Stewart Carle, ASPS General Secretary.
