APCC Impact Report 2019/20


Launch of APCC Impact Report 2019/20

The APCC has launched its Impact Report 2019/20, which demonstrates the breadth of work and impact of the Association against its five business priorities:

  1. Funding, Efficiency and Transformation
  2. Supporting Victims: Developing Local Victims and CJ Commissioning
  3. Communicating and Engaging
  4. Sharing Knowledge and Good Practice
  5. Delivering a National Policy Portfolio Structure

APCC Chair (July 2019 to July 2020), Katy Bourne OBE said:

“It has been a privilege to have chaired the APCC during one of policing’s most challenging years with officers putting themselves on the pandemic frontline to support and enforce public health requirements.

“PCCs have also played an integral part in maintaining public confidence by explaining and amplifying key messages, ensuring that officers have the right PPE, and lobbying for extra funding for Covid policing. My PCC colleagues have represented the unique needs and concerns of communities in their force areas and PCC offices have been at the heart of the local partnership response to domestic violence, anti-social behaviour and online crimes that were exacerbated by lockdowns. 

“Read my introduction, ‘Reflections on a Surprising Year’, in the APCC Impact Report.”

Chair of the APCC (July 2020 to date), Paddy Tipping said:

“I would like to thank Katy Bourne for her outstanding Chairing of the APCC during a demanding time for policing and for the welfare and safety of our communities.

“Despite the challenges and changes in the policing landscape there is a real opportunity to strengthen the role of PCCs and particularly within the criminal justice system.

“The APCC have just published their Business Plan for the next two years. It is ambitious, reflecting the issues and priorities that we know are of greatest importance to our communities. I look forward to working with PCC colleagues and partners over the coming year to implement the plan’s priorities, delivering excellence in policing and keeping our communities safe.”
