I was very pleased last night to receive an email and attached letter from the Committee on Standards in Public Life. The Committee this week announced a detailed inquiry into policing governance. Here are two extracts from the Committee’s letter to CoPaCC…
The letter – and, in particular, the last paragraph – is, I will freely admit, the source of some considerable personal and professional satisfaction. It is, I feel, a very significant acknowledgement and recognition of CoPaCC’s work and positive contribution to policing governance over the last eighteen months or so. That such a significant public body as the Committee on Standards in Public Life can expressly seek out CoPaCC’s insights feels like a commendation of the very considerable work we have undertaken to date.
My thanks and congratulations to all in the extended CoPaCC team who have worked so hard, with me, to get CoPaCC up-and-running. My thanks also to the Committee for this invitation.
CoPaCC will, of course, provide an independent, objective and evidence-based submission in response.
