Independent report

Independent review of ACPO operational activity

An independent review on the future of Association of Chief Police Officers' operational activities.



The Home Office and the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) have jointly commissioned Professor Sir David Omand GCB (King’s College, London) and Sir Denis O’Connor CBE, QPM (HM Chief Inspector of Constabulary) to undertake an independent review on the future of ACPO’s operational activities.

The review is to identify and assess ACPO’s operational activities and make recommendations on future location, management and governance, taking into account work already undertaken by ACPO and HMIC, and involving the police service, Home Office and other government departments as appropriate.

A review of the Police National Information Co-ordination Centre will be a key element of this work. More detail on what the report will consider can be found in the terms of reference below.

The short strategic review will report shortly after the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
