National guidance needs to reflect the experience and expertise of police practitioners. We're consulting on new guidance in a number of areas to make sure the support for officers and staff is as strong as possible.
We want to know what you think about new support for officers to tackle rape and sexual offences and female genital mutilation. The consultations close on 22 and 30 September respectively.
You can find out more about Authorised Professional Practice - the official guidance for policing - on our APP website.
