Consultation on police leadership reform

Public consultation on the future of police leadership and training was launched today by Nick Herbert.

This follows the publication of a report into leadership and training by Peter Neyroud, former chief executive of the National Police Improvement Agency (NPIA).

The policing minister said: ‘In challenging times we need strong and focused leadership at every level in the police to ensure all the service makes the best use of all its resources.

‘We also need high quality training to ensure the service has the skills needed to fight crime. The government is clear that the service should have the lead role in this, in line with our wider approach to public services and policing.

‘I am grateful to Peter Neyroud for producing this report and I would like both the public and the police to give us their views on his recommendations. I will give them careful consideration before final decisions are made.’

The key recommendation of the report is to introduce a body responsible for leadership and training.

The Association of Chief Police Officers would take on a role within this new organisation which would operate under Royal Charter status.

The public consultation now will run for 12 weeks. Read the consultation on the publications section of the Home Office website.

Consultation questions include:

  • who should set and maintain the standards for the police service and how should it be done?
  • what role should the public themselves have in influencing how the police do their work?
  • should a new framework of professional policing qualifications be introduced?
