Chief Superintendent Paul Fotheringham, President of the Police Superintendents' Association will be joining the College of Policing as a non-executive director on the College board.  He is appointed alongside Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire Marc Jones.

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 Paul and Marc will be involved in ensuring the strategic direction and values of the College are aligned with meeting its obligations to the public of setting standards, providing training and sharing good practice across policing.

College Chair, Lord Herbert of South Downs, welcomed both Paul Fotheringham and Marc Jones' 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.” 

Paul Fotheringham 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.”
