PCC and Chief Superintendent join the College board as non-executive directors

Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire Marc Jones and Chief Superintendent Paul Fotheringham will be joining College of Policing as non-executive directors on the College board.

These new positions were confirmed by Home Secretary Suella Braverman earlier this week and they will both officially begin their duties in the new year.

As non-executive directors on the College board, both Marc and Paul will be involved in ensuring the strategic direction and values of the College are aligned with meeting our obligations to the public of setting standards, providing training and sharing good practice across policing.

College Chair, Lord Herbert of South Downs, welcomed both Marc Jones and Paul Fotheringham’s appointment:

“I am delighted that Marc and Paul will be joining the College board.

“PCCs play a vital role in the policing system and I am pleased that Marc will be working with us as we develop and enhance the work we do with Commissioners across the country. The experience and knowledge of policing that Paul brings will be crucial to our work to boost professionalism, drive consistency and improve leadership.

"These appointments will strengthen the College and I am looking forward to welcoming our new members to the board.” 

Police and Crime Commissioner Marc Jones said he was delighted to be joining the organisation and excited about playing a part in shaping the future of policing building on the work of his predecessor Stephen Mold.

“It is an honour and privilege to join the board and I look forward to playing a positive role in developing modern policing.

“There are many challenges facing law enforcement in our communities and I am confident the College can, and will, play a key role in helping to meet those challenges.”

Chief Superintendent Paul Fotheringham, President of the Police Superintendent’s Association said: “I am delighted to have been appointed to the College of Policing Board as a non-executive director, and would like to congratulate Marc Jones who will be joining me in this important role. 

“The College of Policing is fundamental to maintaining the high standards and quality of policing or communities and our workforce expect. I therefore look forward to contributing to its continued growth and development, by providing the insight and experience of superintendents to positively shape its strategy, values and direction.”
