Emergency services collaboration remains a priority for this Government. The Policing and Crime Act 2017 introduced a new duty to collaborate and enables police and crime commissioners to take on responsibility for fire governance where a local case is made. These important measures ensure local leaders are able to drive collaboration in the best interests of their communities.
