Chief constables and Police and Crime Commissioners committed to working together to further reform policing
The National Police Chiefs’ Council and the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners say that police-led transformation projects receiving funding from the Home Office is a positive start to the process of reforming policing.
Julia Mulligan, Chair of the Police Reform and Transformation Board, and PCC for North Yorkshire, said:
“Police and Crime Commissioners and Chief Constables are committed to transforming the way policing is delivered to ensure it meets the needs and expectations of the public. Working closely with other senior policing leaders as the Police Reform and Transformation Board, we welcome the opportunities given to us via the Transformation Fund and are using that money to radically improve services.
“Bids vary in the outcomes they hope to deliver, and this money from the Home Office is being used on specific projects but also on national systems with a view to bringing policing as a whole closer together.
“This work will continue for years to come, but the successful bids as confirmed today are an excellent start to this very important work”
National Police Chiefs’ Council Chair Sara Thornton said:
“The ten police-led projects funded by the Home Office Transformation Fund are a strong, positive start to the process of further reforming and improving policing for the public.
“Police chiefs and Police Crime and Commissioners have come together with the Home Office and other key police leaders to develop new tactics and capabilities to meet the changing threats while providing efficient, value for money service.
“We are committed to continuing to work together to set the vision for how policing needs to change in the next five years and to make it happen.”
