Head: Andy Cooke QPM, Chief Constable, Merseyside Police
The Crime Coordination Committee is divided into twelve portfolios and along with partners coordinates and directly influences frontline policing, APP and specific training for themes that range from violence and public protection, serious and organised crime, cybercrime and modern slavery.
Due to the broad and complex nature of crime, the portfolios are sub-divided into a number of further working groups, each of which focus on specific crimes. For example, violence and public protection includes working groups focusing specifically on types of crime such as rape, domestic violence, knife crime, guns and gangs.
