Roads policing

The National Police Chiefs' Council (NPCC) (2018) Policing our Roads Together: A 3 year strategy 2018-2021 prioritises:

  • reducing road casualties
  • disrupting criminality
  • countering terrorism
  • patrolling the roads

Police performance in delivering the national policing plan is monitored through the police performance assessment framework. This includes recording the number of people killed or seriously injured in police force areas in relation to the volume of traffic.

Forces are encouraged to develop a partnership working ethos and common operating procedures and protocols with external responding and investigative agencies. This will ensure that roles, responsibilities and expectations are clearly defined.
