Neighbourhood policing guidelines

Neighbourhood policing

In line with the 2016 HMIC report into police effectiveness, the College of Policing is developing guidelines to support neighbourhood policing. The approach adopted to produce these guidelines is development by committee. This includes:

  • working collaboratively with the service using independent, unbiased committees of specialist and generalist practitioners, subject matter experts from academia and partner agencies and the third sector
  • ensuring guidelines are based on the best available evidence by carrying out systematic reviews of the evidence required to underpin the scope
  • supplementing these reviews with unbiased consensus of expert opinion (systematically elicited)
  • producing a series of recommendations for practice underpinned by supporting evidence.

The guideline committee (GC) group is an independent advisory group that considers the evidence and develops the guideline recommendations, taking into account the views of stakeholders. The GC is made up of a number of standing members including a chair, frontline practitioners and subject matter experts.

Project documents relating to this project will be hosted from this page and published as they are developed for release.
