Neighbourhood policing
We found that the police service is committed to stopping neighbourhood policing being eroded. The National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) lead for neighbourhood policing, working with the College of Policing, is developing guidelines for neighbourhood policing called Modernising Neighbourhood Policing and supporting material.

The benefits of effective neighbourhood policing include:

 -a better flow of vital community intelligence, including matters relevant to national security;
 -promoting community safety and making people feel safer;
 -preventing crime and disorder;
 -protecting vulnerable people;
 -creating resilient communities less reliant on police support; and
 -enhancing police legitimacy so that forces are policing effectively by consent.

The guidelines will be issued by the end of March 2018. The NPCC lead is helping forces review the extent to which they meet the guidelines. We will assess how well forces are implementing the guidelines in the integrated PEEL assessment in 2018.

Recommendation 1

By October 2018, all forces should review their own approach to neighbourhood policing to check whether the service they provide to local communities meets these guidelines. As soon as possible, they should make any changes they need to implement the guidelines.
