Police Public Encounters Board

‚ÄčPurpose.  The Police and Public Encounters Board (PPEB) exists to provide a national forum where all issues relating to the interface between the police service and members of the public can be considered and debated. It provides an opportunity to identify and promote best practice.  The Board sits under the remit of the stop and search portfolio which is part of the Uniform Business Operations Business Area. The National Police Chiefs' Council (NPCC) lead for stop and search is Deputy Chief Constable Adrian Hanstock (BTP), who chairs the meetings.
