Developing Police Capabilities & Tackling Serious Organised Crime
Never have we needed more to work with partners, both in and outside of policing, to join up services and to tackle the rise of serious and organised crime (SOC), which operates transnationally and internationally. The APCC works with PCCs to develop new delivery and capability models for policing that can improve our response to these new and evolving forms of criminality – including mobilising the Forensics Capability Network (FCN) and contributing to the development of a new funding and delivery model for the National Police Air Service (NPAS).
Our priorities for developing police capabilities and tackling SOC are:
- To play a full and active role in tackling SOC, helping to join up systems and services locally, regionally, and nationally and developing our ROCUs to ensure they are supported and equipped to deliver effectively on behalf of the public.
- To provide leadership and governance to support the development of specialist capability networks to deliver more efficient and agile policing services to the public, including the Transforming Forensics
The APCC Modern Slavery work sits jointly between the SOC and Victims Portfolios and works to ensure that PCCs are engaged on both a local and national level to prevent the most vulnerable from exploitation and trafficking.
Our priorities are:
- To bring PCCs and other key strategic stakeholders together to work to improve how we combat human trafficking and modern slavery in all its forms.
- Support PCCs to commission victim focused modern slavery services in their areas, drawing on known best practice.
- To give PCCs a voice on a national level to influence policy and legislation in this area - being both an effective voice for Modern Slavery Victims and a key supporting in the work to establish a consistent national strategy.
