Formation2015

The National Police Chiefs' Council (NPCC) was set up in 2015 to represent British police chiefs and act as a national co-ordinating body for some police activities. It replaces the former Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO), following the Parker Review of the operations of ACPO which recommended its replacement.[1][2][3]

The NPCC is not a legal entity in its own right, but a collaboration between British police forces, who collectively run and fund it under the terms of Section 22A of the Police Act 1996.[4][5] It is hosted by the Metropolitan Police Service.

The NPCC is headed by Sara Thornton, the former Chief Constable of the Thames Valley Police.[6]

  • ACRO Criminal Records Office (ACRO)
