Neyroud Report - salient points
Peter Neyroud published his report this week into police training, leadership and development. The report is some 385 pages long, beating Winsor & Hutton!!
There is an awful lot of 'commentary' within the report but the recommendations that our members will be interested in are as follows:
Scrap ACPO and replace it with a professional chartered council
Scrap OSPRE & WBA and introduce 'management qualification for policing'
Introduce a 'licence to police', cost £50 per year + one off £30 registration fee (includes PCSO's)
Introduce Police Initial Qualification - required before anyone can apply to become a police officer (will be A level equivalent)
Entry point to police service should remain at Constable
Simplified PDR systems
The report is now out for a 12 week consultation process before Ministers consider where they will go with it.
