APCC Chair appointment to College of Policing board of directors
The professional body for policing in England and Wales has appointed Lincolnshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner to its board of directors.
PCC Marc Jones’ new position at the College of Policing was confirmed by Home Secretary, Suella Braverman earlier this week and he will officially begin his duties in the new year.
The College is an independent body that supports professional development, sets standards and shares knowledge and good practice across national policing.
Mr Jones, who is already chair of the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners, will be the representative of all PCCs across England and Wales on the board.
Mr Jones said he was delighted to be joining the organisation and excited about playing a part in shaping the future of policing building on the work of his predecessor, Stephen Mold.
“It is an honour and privilege to join the board and I look forward to playing a positive role in developing modern policing,” he said.
“There are many challenges facing law enforcement in our communities and I am confident the College can, and will, play a key role in helping to meet those challenges.
“To have the opportunity to bring the voice of Lincolnshire people into that discussion is both a great responsibility and opportunity. I am delighted to have the chance to make a positive contribution.”
College Chair, Lord Herbert of South Downs, welcomed Marc’s appointment.
“I am delighted that Marc will be joining the College board. PCCs play a vital role in the policing system and I am pleased that Marc will be working with us as we develop and enhance the work we do with Commissioners across the country.
“His appointment will strengthen the College and I am looking forward to welcoming him to the Board.”
