APCC Chair, Paddy Tipping said: “Police and Crime Commissioners are committed to meeting the targets for the recruitment of police officers established by the Police Uplift Programme.
"It is testament to the hard work of the police service, both locally and nationally, that the service is on track to meet these targets while some forces have already met their target for 20/21, some eight months ahead of schedule, this despite the undoubted difficulties caused by COVID-19.
"Police and Crime Commissioners will be developing their discussions with chief constables about Uplift and continuing the conversation about recruiting police officers that are representative of the communities they serve.”
