The years 2012-2015 will see change for the UK’s domestic security and policing structures. Most notable among these reforms is the replacement of police authorities with directly elected Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs); a transition which is intended to radically shift the balance of power and control away from central government. So say organisers of a conference in London on October 30.
The establishment of a National Crime Agency (NCA) will also take place, to lead the fight against serious organised crime and strengthen security at the UK’s borders. It is due to become fully operational in 2013 and will absorb the Serious Organised Crime Agency, the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre, elements of the UK Borders Agency, and in addition the National Police Improvement Authority will be abolished and pass some responsibility into this new organisation.
