The National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC)
The National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) brings UK police leaders together to set direction in policing and drive progress for the public. It enables Chief Constables and their forces to work collectively and collaboratively to help policing coordinate operations, reform, improve and provide value for money.
Policing is operating in a time of global change and uncertainty, the public and our staff need a service which is responsive, able to tackle future challenges and embrace opportunity. The NPCC aims to support our operationally independent chief officers in their ambition to meet this need. We have been able to do this by adhering to the NPCC principles of coordination, collaboration and communication, through the strength of our policing network and effective partnership working.
Chief officers support the NPCC by taking responsibility for crime and policing issues from a national operational perspective. This work is managed through Chief Constables’ Council which provides the key decision-making forum for operationally independent Chief Constables to meet and agree common approaches and coordinate national responses.
The NPCC has been granted 3.2 million by Home Office as part of the government spending review to boost its response and coordination of national policing issues.
