The UK Border Agency has published further details of a radical new programme of reform to ‘change the face of policing and re-establish the link between the police and the public, tackle organised crime and protect our borders’.

Home Secretary Theresa May said the new policy, Policing in the 21st Century: Reconnecting Police and the People, sets out ‘how the police service in England and Wales will become more accountable to the public and responsive to local people, more focused at a national level and more effective at tackling crime, as well as providing better value for money’.

She continued:

‘A new National Crime Agency will lead the fight against organised crime, protect our borders and provide services best delivered at a national level.

‘It is envisaged that the new Agency will be made up of a number of operational ‘commands’, under the leadership of a chief constable.

‘This powerful new body will harness and exploit the intelligence, analytical and enforcement capabilities of the existing Serious Organised Crime Agency and the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre and better connect these capabilities to those within the police service, HM Revenue and Customs, the UK Border Agency and a range of other criminal justice partners.’

Further details of the proposals, which will feature in the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill, will be published in the autumn.

Ahead of the launch of this Bill, the Government is seeking the views of both the public and professionals across the criminal justice system on specific aspects of the reform programme.

You can view the consultation on the Home Office website.
