NPCC & CoP VAWG Outcomes and performance framework
Joint APCC Victims Leads Donna Jones and Sophie Linden said:
“We welcome the joint National Police Chiefs Council and College of Policing’s Violence Against Women and Girls Outcomes and performance framework. Following on from the publication of their VAWG Framework in December last year it shows a steady commitment to increasing standards across policing and ensuring progress is measurable.
“We are fully supportive of these efforts and have been engaging with our colleagues in the NPCC and Maggie Blyth, VAWG Lead, on their ambitions. We look forward to the development of the progress measures into 2023 and beyond. As PCCs we will be using this framework and the metrics to really understand performance across our forces and holding our chief constables to account to ensure policing is delivering an effective response to VAWG and the public can feel safe and supported.
“As the APCC we have last week published our own VAWG Action Plan which sets out our ambition for tacking VAWG in the next year. A critical aspect of the plan is working with partners; only by working together will we be able to definitively tackle this issue.”
