Reforming Criminal Justice: The College of Policing

leave a comment »

In December 2012, the College of Policing was created. Its central mission is to set standards for the police service on training, development, skills and qualifications, and  to help the service implement these standards. The College is currently a non-statutory body, though the Government hopes it will be put on a statutory footing by April 2014.

It takes over functions formerly undertaken by the National Policing Improvement Agency, which had been established in 2007 by the previous Labour Government.

The College of Policing’s website gives quite a lot of information about the different issues it seeks to address in the programmes or work that it undertakes.
