Joint International Policing Hub
The Joint International Policing Hub (JIPH) is currently funded by the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) and administered by the Stabilisation Unit. The JIPH is housed alongside but independent of the National Police Coordination Centre with oversight governance provided by the National Police Chiefs’ Council International Coordination Committee (ICC) comprised of a range of senior representatives from government, police and law enforcement.
The JIPH will ensure that the UK is more joined up in its approach to international policing. It will identify, prioritise, develop and deliver upon non-operational international policing requirements and requests in line with government priorities and according to need. For the first time the JIPH gives the UK a gateway for domestic and global stakeholders to access non-operational UK international policing assistance.
The JIPH is developing the International Police Assistance Brief (IPAB) process towards a new phase with the introduction of a more user-friendly, accessible and auditable web-based system and will work with others to develop a career pathway for officers who deploy internationally.
It also builds strategic bilateral and multilateral networks with countries and institutions and contributes to a range of international activity on behalf of the UK.
