Memorandum of Understanding - Collaboration

Memorandum of Understanding - Collaboration (April 2014)

The Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011 (PR&SRA) makes a number of amendments to the Police Act 1996, placing statutory responsibilities on Police and Crime Commissioners (Commissioners) in respect of collaboration; this includes establishing joint oversight measures of collaborative arrangements.

Section 23D of the PR&SRA 2011 also states that Commissioners must hold their Chief Constables to account for acting under the terms of the collaborative agreement.

In order to address these responsibilities, it was agreed at the All Wales Policing Group held on the 26th and 27th March 2014, that a joint MoU would be adopted to establish scrutiny arrangements that would apply to all existing and also any new collaborative agreements.
