The Prime Minister has appointed Zoë Billingham as the new Chair of the Police Remuneration Review Body (PRRB) and the National Crime Agency Remuneration Review Body (NCARRB).
The appointment follows a robust open competition, conducted in line with the Governance Code on Public Appointments. Zoë will take up her appointment on 13 January, on a term of 3 years.
Zoë has spent many years working in policing. She served as Her Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services for 12 years, during which time she shone a light on all aspects of policing and created the new fire inspectorate.
