The International Police Assistance Board was established in July 2008. It is a senior cross-departmental and senior police service advisory body, chaired by the Association of Chief Police Officers. Its aims are to better co-ordinate delivery of HMG cross-departmental initiatives and police service professional interest overseas and to develop a strategic overview of UK aims in international police assistance.
