With the exception of the changes reflecting police and crime commissioners taking office on 22 November, these changes will take effect immediately.
The Secretary of State for the Home Department has also made changes to the constitution for the Police Advisory Board for England and Wales (PABEW), following consultation with the members of the PABEW. The amended constitution is attached to this circular. These changes will take effect immediately.
The amendments to both constitutions are made to reflect a number of changes happening across the policing landscape in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
