Policing in the UK is organised separately in each of the legal systems of England and Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland. The NPCC (National Police Chief's Council) brings police forces together to help them coordinate operations, reform, improve and provide value for money. 

This website covers policing information and services in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Scotland is covered by Police Scotland
