League Seek Data on Civilianisation of Police Services

NEWS FROM THE CELTIC LEAGUE

The Celtic League has written to the NPCC, HMIC and HMICS asking if they have any up to date statistical data on the impact of civilianisation of Police Services.

Early this week the Isle of Man department of Home Affairs commenced a consultation on possible change options within the police including civilianisation of some functions.

Copies of the correspondence to NPCC and the HMIC are set out below:

Dear Ms Thornton,

I am writing to ask if NPCC (or your predecessor organisation the ACPO) have compiled any recent data on the extent and impact of civilianisation of the Police Service.

I have looked on line at your website and cannot see little reference to same (I note only one item entitled ‘Cost of Cops’ September 2011 is there anything more recent?). If there is a link to any recent data I would be grateful if you could furnish same. Alternatively if there is a print publication if you could furnish a copy of that it would be most helpful.

The Celtic League are hoping to respond to a recent consultation issued in relation to Police Services in the Isle of Man (see link) and we would wish any comment we may make to be informed by the best up to date information from those in key sectors of the Police Service such as NPCC.

There is a ‘tight window’ of opportunity in relation to this consultation and whilst I appreciate the pressures which may apply to your organisation an early response would be most helpful.

Dear Sir Tom,

I understand for over the past three decades the HMIC have had a role to play in monitoring the impact of civilianisation of the Police

I am writing to ask if HMIC have compiled any recent data on the extent and impact of civilianisation on the Police Services in England and Wales.

I have carried at a search on your website and cannot see reference to any publication; if there is a link to any recent data (or even a press statement) I would be grateful if you could furnish same. Alternatively if there any reports in print if you could furnish details it would be most helpful.

The Celtic League are hoping to respond to a recent consultation issued in relation to Police Services in the Isle of Man (see link) and we would wish any comment we may make to be informed by the best up to date information from those in key sectors of the Police Service such as HMIC (and your Scottish Counterparts) and NPPC.

I understand you have periodically been invited to carry out inspections of the Manx Force and (for information) I have asked the Islands Department of Home Affairs if any recommendations, suggestions or observations (on civilianisation) have been made by your body as a consequence of those inspections.

There is a ‘tight window’ of opportunity in relation to this consultation and whilst I appreciate the pressures which may apply to your organisation an early response would be most helpful
