National Police Chiefs’ Council
March 9th, 2015
To sign to become a party to the S22a Agreement under the Police Act 1996 (as amended) to establish the National Police Chiefs’ Council (the “NPCC”).
In order to deliver some of the functions that were previously carried out by the Association of Chief Police Officers, the Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner (“the Commissioner”) and the Chief Constable of Cambridgeshire Constabulary will be parties to the S22a Agreement under the Police Act 1996 (as amended).
The S22a Agreement will establish a new co-ordinating body known as the National Police Chiefs’ Council (the “NPCC”). Whist I am able to sign the agreement I will be asking that the insurance section of the agreement be reviewed in the near future in order to improve ease of implementation.
The NPCC will be hosted by the Metropolitan Police.
The Business Coordination Board, at their meeting on the 20th January 2015, considered a paper on the NPCC and made a recommendation that the Commissioner sign the S22a Agreement.
