Justice and policing is devolved to Northern Ireland and Scotland and policing priorities are determined by these areas.

Across England and Wales, the Government has ensured that, through the election of Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs), communities have a strong voice in determining how police resources are allocated to tackle the crimes that matter most to them, including those in rural areas. Chief Constables and PCCs are responsible for setting priorities in tackling crime in their areas.

The Government is determined to prevent and defend against serious and organised crime. Our new strategy, published in November 2018, sets out how we will mobilise the full force of the state and align our collective efforts.
