Road policing

The NPCC (2015) Policing the Roads in Partnership – 5 Year Strategy 2015 – 2020 prioritises the following:

  • 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.
