Frontline voices

What influence have "frontline champions" had between forces and the College?

‚ÄčOur network of frontline champions has made a huge impact on the College's development as the professional body for policing.

They have been invaluable in supporting the development of the Code of Ethics (see this month's In Focus article), and in providing feedback and acting as a critical friend on areas of work such as membership, flexible working and mental ill-health.

Last month, our champions in Cheshire and Greater Manchester showed the College Chair, Professor Dame Shirley Pearce, more of the daily work that officers do to protect the public.

Dame Shirley said: "I am enormously grateful to all the officers and staff I met this week in GMP and Cheshire. They gave very generously of their time and their ideas, and it was good to see at first hand the work they do to protect the public. My warmest thanks to Karen and Dan, the College frontline champions, for organising such an informative programme."

There are 28 frontline champions covering 30 police force areas. You can find out more about your force's champion on our Frontline champions page.
