Priti Patel – 2021 Comments on Appointment of Nick Herbert as the Chair of College of Policing

The comments made by Priti Patel, the Home Secretary, on 14 January 2021.

I welcome Nick as the new Chair of the College of Policing – he will bring with him a wealth of experience and knowledge of policing and the criminal justice system.

The College of Policing plays a vital role in delivering the training that makes our police force the best in the world, and is playing a crucial role in the recruitment of 20,000 additional police officers.

I would like to extend my thanks to Christine for her part in leading the College through the challenging demands on policing in 2020.
