Stop pumping public money into ACPO, a private company

The Association of Chief Police Officers is a private company which receives millions of pounds a year of state money. It advises Government, it sets policing policy, it campaigns for increased police powers, and is engaged in commercial activities over which it has a monopoly.

Much of the legislation which has reduced our liberties over the last 13 years has been proposed or strongly supported by ACPO.

As a private company it is not accountable to the public, and is not covered by the Freedom of Information act.
