Project summary - Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) review

Met People imageProject name: ACPO Review

MPA lead officer: Alan Johnson

Met Forward work strand: Met People

Project summary

The MPA have written to previous Home Secretaries setting out their dissatisfaction with the existing terms and conditions for ACPO and the performance related pay scheme. There are now 12 months left before the current three year national pay deal expires. This offers the MPA a significant opportunity to address an outdated approach to ACPO terms and conditions.

Project objectives

  • That the pay regime for ACPO ranks will be transparent, competitive and fair.
  • That any additional changes to ACPO officer’s terms and conditions are considered by Human Resources and Remuneration Sub-committee.
  • To contribute to the delivery of the three key outcomes of Met Forward – fight crime and reduce criminality, increase confidence in policing and give us better value for money.

Authority’s role to deliver work strand

The MPA will negotiate the terms and conditions of ACPO officers in line with the available funding. Proposals will be considered and agreed by the MPA’s Human Resources and Remuneration Sub-committee.

What will success look like?

As a result of this piece of work there will be a fair and flexible terms and conditions for ACPO officers. Any additional individual payments will be given to reward genuine improvements in performance or productivity and recognise the particular challenges of policing London.

Responsible MPA committee

Human Resources and Remuneration Sub-committee, which reports to the Communities, Equalities and People Committee.
