The College of Policing is independent from Government and its role is clear: setting high professional standards; sharing what works best; acting as the national voice of policing; and ensuring police training and ethics is of the highest possible quality.

The College of Policing has recently consulted on revised operational guidance on hate crime, which the College plans to publish in due course to support forces dealing with hate crimes and hate incidents.
