The NPCC brings police forces in the UK together to help policing coordinate operations, reform, improve and provide value for money.
The NPCC is working with police leaders to agree and make changes that will transform policing.
There are eleven broad coordination committees, each led by a chief constable, covering issues such as crime operations, finance and criminal justice. Underneath these broad categories chief officers take the lead on specific issues. For example, under the Crime Operations Committee there are individual leads for domestic abuse, rape, drugs and cyber-crime.
Chief Constables' Council is the senior operational decision-making body for the National Police Chiefs' Council.
The NPCC is involved in additional pieces of work such as coordinating national police operations, public inquiries and providing information on national policing.
