Developing our Workforce

Through the APCC, PCCs work with the police and other partners to ensure that the police service is able to attract and retain a workforce of confident professionals, who have the training and support they need to adapt to new challenges and opportunities and to work with a high degree of autonomy and accountability. PCCs also have a central role in annual pay negotiations for police officers and staff.

Our workforce priorities are:

  • To support and drive the recruitment of 20,000 new police officers by 2023.
  • To provide national and local leadership on equality and diversity, including increasing the number and diversity of applicants for chief officer positions.
