APCC Chair becomes signatory to new Police Industry Charter


APCC Chair Donna Jones has become a signatory to a new Police and Industry Charter which sets out foundational principles upon which the policing sector and industry partners collectively agree to adhere as they work together to design and deliver effective crime-fighting products and services, and develop the skills required to tackle rapidly evolving crime challenges.

Marking the Charter's launch, Donna Jones said:

“Police and Crime Commissioners are elected to oversee an effective and efficient police service in their areas. To achieve that in the 21st century, the sector must embrace the development and use of new technology to fight crime in all its forms at local and national levels.  

“Criminals’ technological capabilities are evolving at high speed. Britain’s police need to be able to respond - not only to keep pace but to get ahead of those who wish to do harm.   

“I am delighted to be a signatory to the Police Industry Charter. By promoting and supporting productive partnerships between industry and policing, we can together ensure forces have the technology and the skills required to tackle the policing challenges they face, keep the public safe and improve victims’ experiences of the criminal justice system.”
