Notable Practice and Knowledge Share

Welcome to the Association of Police Crime Commissioners Notable Practice and Knowledge Share webpage.

A good or notable practice is defined as anything that has been tried and shown to work in some way - whether fully or in part but with at least some evidence of effectiveness—and that may have implications for practice at any level elsewhere.

The Notable Practice platform consists of several elements, to assist and support Police Crime Commissioners (PCC), Police Fire & Crime Commissioners (PFCC), Deputy Mayors and Office of Police Crime Commissioners (OPCC) staff:

  • Notable Practice table
  • Submission Template
  • Links to the College of Policing ‘What Works’ site
  • Access to the Notable Practice Knowledge Hub group
  • Additional links to other knowledge sites

Currently the notable practice table has 100 items and holds data regarding initiatives and collaborations the PCC’s support and fund within their area. In addition, we are interested in OPCC’s sharing specific ways of working within their office.

Some of the notable practice that OPCC's have shared include:

Business Crime

Including quicker reporting and cloud based intelligence


Environment & sustainability 

Including updates on fleet and buildings



Including breaking barriers down between public and police


Transparency & Integrity 

Including how OPCC deal with complaints and ethics


Preventing Serious Crime

Including Homicide and Domestic Homicide Reviews



Including Safer Streets, the Street Safe app and night time initiatives

Victims (including VAWG and third party collaborations) 20

Substance Misuse

Including commissioning services


The APCC supports PCC’s in their national portfolio work. The Notable Practice data in the table can be filtered and sorted by these portfolio themes.

To share items of notable practice, members should use the submission template that can be accessed via the members notable practice home page.
