The review, which was commissioned by the Home Secretary, will be led by Sir Stephen House, supported by an advisory board including Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Constabulary and Fire Services (HMICFRS), the chief executive of the College of Policing, the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners (APCC), and other representatives from policing as well as external experts.

Terms of reference will be published in due course, following agreement by the advisory board and Home Office. It is expected to report within 12 months and with interim findings by Spring 2023.

NPCC Chair, Martin Hewitt, said: “We want to provide the best possible policing to the public. This review, commissioned by the Home Office and overseen by the NPCC, will make recommendations on how to improve effectiveness and productivity in policing, identifying the barriers and the most efficient operating models.

“In the coming weeks, we will work with Sir Steve to draw together an advisory board of policing partners and external experts to shape the terms of reference and put a review team in place.”
