At the beginning of the new financial year the National Police Chiefs' Council will replace the Association of Chief Police Officers.

MOPAC/MPS will provide funding of £290,000 to the National Police Chiefs' Council (NPCC) in 2015/16. Although budgets for the NPCC have reduced substantially compared to ACPO budgets, the MOPAC contribution remains unchanged as the NPCC will have no commercial interests, as its predecessor organisation had.  We will be pressing the NPCC to keep a strong focus on value for money.

The NPCC will want to draw on the senior expertise of officers from across all forces, including the MPS, but these are not formal roles.
