The National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) helps the police cut crime and keep the public safe by joining up the operational response to the most serious and strategic threats. Focusing on operational delivery and developing national approaches on issues such as finance, technology and human resources, we work closely with the College of Policing, which is responsible for developing professional standards.
New national strategy for police custody
Police chiefs have developed a set of nationally consistent principles to complement existing legislation and guidance and help forces ensure that they are using custody in a way that is legitimate, effective and efficient.
The police service is committed to achieving accreditation and improving standards of forensic science
The forensic regulators annual report highlights key priority areas for policing to meet in order to continue to enhance our response and prevent quality failures.
