Articles of Association
The Police Digital Service Articles of Association set out governance arrangements to include a Board of Directors comprising of Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs), a representative of other policing governance bodies, a representative of the Police Technology Council, the Chairperson of the National Police Chiefs’ Council and a representative of the Home Office.
The Police Digital Service Board has been meeting at least quarterly to provide strategic direction and to review progress against our business plan, financial report, performance report and risk register. An opportunity to review the performance of the PDS and endorse the business plan and budget for the forthcoming year is provided at the Annual General Meeting.
Who’s on our Board?
The Police Digital Service Board consists of Police and Crime Commissioners, the Chief Executive for the APCC as a co-opted member with full voting rights, a representative from the “other policing governance bodies”, plus representatives from the National Police Technology Council, the National Police Chief’s Council, the Home Office and the Chief Constables’ Information Management and Operational Requirements Portfolio.
In addition, the Police Digital Service regularly engages with members at the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners’ General Meetings and regional meetings which take place throughout the year, to ensure Members are informed of the work of the PDS and that this work is adding value.
