The APCC supports its members in providing national leadership and in driving strategic change across the policing, criminal justice and wider community safety landscape. The membership organisation provides a national voice and gives its members the platform to be able to influence and shape public debate and inform policy and decision making nationally.

Through working closely with national partners, the APCC influences policy and supports system wide improvements.

APCC Chair Marc Jones, said: “We are delighted to welcome the CNPA as an Associate member of the APCC.

“The CNPA oversee the work of the Civil Nuclear Constabulary, and as such have a unique perspective on policing. Their membership will provide a valuable contribution to the Association and its members.

“We are looking forward to working with the CNPA and increasing collaboration and information sharing regarding the important work we all do.”

Sir Craig Mackay, QPM, CNPA Interim Chair said: “We are delighted to have been accepted as Associate members of the APCC. The Association enables a sharing of expertise and advice on vital issues, and it has an important voice in policing as the home of policing governance.

“The CNPA feel that membership of the APCC is an important step as we seek to undertake service expansion which will enable us to help other police forces protect the public.

“We look forward to engaging with the Association and its members. We have so much to learn from their collective experience and knowledge, and we will strive to make a contribution to that experience and knowledge ourselves in any way we can.”
