NPCC to review productivity in policing

The Home Secretary has asked the NPCC to leave a review of productivity in policing.

It will be led by Sir Stephen House who this morning announced that the will step down from his role as Acting Commisioner next month. 

The review is set to look at effectiveness and productivity in policing - identifying barriers as well as the most efficient operating models. Technology and streamlining processes will also be looked at. 

Sir Steven House will be supported by an advisory board including HMICFRS, the chief executive of the College of Policing, Andy Marsh, and the APCC. 

Terms of reference have not yet been published but interim findings are expected by Spring 2023 with a report within 12 months. 

National Police Chiefs’ Council Chair, Martin Hewitt, said: “We want to provide the best possible policing to the public.  This review, commissioned by the Home Office and overseen by the NPCC, will make recommendations on how to improve effectiveness and productivity in policing, identifying the barriers and the most efficient operating models.

“In the coming weeks, we will work with Sir Steve to draw together an advisory board of policing partners and external experts to shape the terms of reference and put a review team in place.”

Also announced was Assistant Commissioner Nick Ephgrave’s secondment to the NPCC where he will continue his work as criminal justice lead on a full time basis.
