The Commissioner to be heard.
The recently published Mackey/Savill Review of the national ‘lead force’ responsibilities of the City of London Police and the effectiveness of investigations in the UK was discussed and the following points were made.
· The Commissioner welcomed the review and noted that the Force would be working with the Home Office to address the recommendations raised within it.
· The Deputy Chief Executive similarly welcomed the review and confirmed that the Authority would work with the Force to address its recommendations. The Authority recognised that all 43 Forces in England needed to be engaged in order to address the issue of fraud and noted the review’s recommendation that the City of London Police remained at the heart of any future solution to combat fraud.
· The Director of Communications (Authority) noted that the publication of the review had attracted fair and balanced coverage.
