PUBLISHED October 7, 2013

National policing lead for protected persons Deputy Chief Constable, Andy Cooke said:

"A UK-wide protected persons service which is regionally delivered by the police service, but coordinated through the National Crime Agency, will strengthen the fight against organised crime.

"Chief Constables support the plan for its development and believe it will provide a more consistent approach to delivery of protected persons services across the country. The service will be working closely with government and the NCA to bring this new national service into being."
