COME IN ACPO YOUR TIME IS UP!

Hugely unpopular with the Conservatives when they were the Shadow party, ACPO have done little since the arrival of the Coalition Government to improve the regard with which they are held.

Our latest report THE CASE AGAINST ACPO - A CRITICAL LOOK AT THE ASSOCIATION OF CHIEF POLICE OFFICERS, brings together many of the moments of contraversy surrounding this self serving, deceitful, profligate, political oligarchy (self appointed non democratic organisation) who are disloyal to their rank and file officers and of doubtful value to the public at large. 

This report contains a collection of their worst moments, scandalous revelations and perhaps most importantly, the current thoughts of influential serving police officers.   

ACPO as an organisation is a massive drain on public funds. The question must be asked and answered – “DOES ACPO SERVE A LEGITIMATE INDEPENDENT PURPOSE AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, DOES THE MASSIVE EXPENDITURE REPRESENT VALUE FOR THE TAX PAYERS MONEY THAT FUNDS IT?”


We would argue that ACPO as a group, has become a divisive self-serving organisation that has proven time and time again, that it does not meet the high standards the public would expect of its most senior police officers. Riddled with controversy over recent years, as the report will illustrate, ACPO has become an embarrassing stain on the character of the police service. They have repeatedly betrayed the rank and file officers who serve under their command and numerous examples of profligate spending does not sit comfortably with the public in the current financial climate.


The time has come for this unelected, unsupervised and powerful body to be brought to heel and replaced with a legislatively-controlled organisation which can be called to account for its activities.

This report pulls no punches. It tells the ACPO story as it really is and it makes sorry reading. To read or download our full report click here. Alternatively, you can view the report from our "View Our Reports" section in the sidebar to your right.

Only just started reading the report so can't comment on the content yet, but there is a grammar mistake in the first paragraph of the introduction; "parties" should read "party's"

Penbwich from Police Oracle Form says:

If they don't like ACPO, they can always return it to what it was before Labour corrupted it.

In fact, I would have thought that would have been the first job of the new government. They would have a much easier time reforming the police if they reformed the top level first.

Spot on.

As I understand it, it all went tits up from 1997 onward. Before that ACPO was an unofficial group of Chiefs who related their local experiences. Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely as we have seen.

The big problem is how easy it is to be an Acpo. I'm reminded of that phrase 'better to have them inside the tent than outside pissing in'. The critical perspective and facts were managed out. I can't see anything positive about them. Given their intense PR, one would expect all kinds of 'success stories', yet there are none.

Could it be possible that the 12.5 years of 24/7/365 totally invasive, non-stop, indefinite surveillance torture abuse to which I've been subjected in North Kensington without any accountabilty from mid-August 1998 to the present originates from an ACPO organisation? I've just started reading your report.
