The College of Policing is a professional body for the police in England and Wales. It was established in 2012 to take over a number of training and development roles that were the responsibility of the National Policing Improvement Agency.[1] The college was created initially as a company limited by guarantee, but is due to be converted to an independent statutory authority following the passing of legislation by Government.[2]

The college officially launched on 4 February 2013 with Chief Constable Alex Marshall as Chief Executive.[3]
