Privatisation of Policing

Back to all Motions

2013 Police & Justice Conference
12 June 2013

This conference notes its concern that recent developments within the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO)/Crime Prevention Initiatives (CPI) include the decision that some Crime Prevention work currently undertaken by Police staff/officers will now be able to be carried out by private consultants (retired Police Officers/staff). There has been no consultation with Forces, UNISON or staff before this decision was made.

South Wales Police branch calls on conference to call on UNISON to take up this issue as a matter of urgency at any appropriate national forums and co-ordinate a campaign against the privatisation of police services.
