The National Policing Board has been established to help ensure all parts of the policing system work together to establish a strategic vision and take an overview of strategic investment decisions in order to deliver the best possible outcomes for the public and make our streets safer. Investment in policing will allow forces to recruit 20,000 additional officers over the next three years; the National Policing Board will ensure we deliver on that commitment.

Alongside this we are in the process of finalising a series of desired crime outcomes which will be blended with local priorities set by Police and Crime Commissioner.
