Candidate briefings outlining the various areas where central government input is important.
The Home Office contributes to cutting crime and promoting community safety through its national policy and strategies. We recognise that police and crime commissioners (PCCs), police forces and their partners are best placed to decide on what action is needed to tackle crime in their areas, but there are some aspects of crime and policing that need national strategies and nationally coordinated operational response. PCCs will need to be aware of these, and how they affect police and partners.
The briefings listed below look at the various areas where central government input is important, whether, for example, it is national co-ordination of our policing contribution to international law enforcement, or our work with the drinks and hospitality industries to reshape our national approach to alcohol.
