25 Jul NPCC Chair responds to government announcement on police recruitment
National Police Chiefs’ Council Chair, Martin Hewitt QPM said:
“This substantial growth in police officers will ease the pressure on our people and help us to reduce crime and improve outcomes for victims. It is also an incredible opportunity to accelerate our plans to increase diversity in policing.
“We will work closely with the College of Policing and the Government on the detail and practical implications of such a significant recruitment drive.
“Crime is rising and its complexity is growing. We face many challenges and opportunities. A policing board bringing together government and the policing system will enable us work together to prioritise operational focus and investment in order to have the maximum impact in keeping the public safe.”
