Manchester Arena Inquiry Monitored Recommendation hearings
This week, the Manchester Arena Inquiry chairman has heard evidence relating to the monitored recommendations of the Volume Two and Three reports.
Sir John Saunders also released recommendations relating to the Volume Three closed report on Monday (5 June).
The National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) is responsible for coordinating and tracking progress made by national policing organisations in response to recommendations made in Volume Two of the Manchester Arena Inquiry.
National Police Chiefs’ Council Lead for the Manchester Arena Inquiry, Assistant Chief Constable Vicki Evans, said:
“Since the outset of the Manchester Arena Inquiry, the National Police Chiefs Council, working with other national policing organisations, has been committed to responding in full and with candour to the recommendations made by the Inquiry chair.
“This week, representatives from the NPCC, CTP and The College of Policing have provided Sir John Saunders with comprehensive updates on progress made so far, demonstrating our continued drive along with our blue light service partners, to improve our collective response to terrorist incidents in the UK.
“We will continue to work with the Inquiry to provide further updates where required.”
Counter Terrorism Policing (CTP) are working with the UK Intelligence Community to address recommendations made in the closed Volume Three Report of the Manchester Arena Inquiry.
Head of Counter Terrorism Policing Matt Jukes said:
“Whilst today sees a formal conclusion to the Inquiry, I know that for those directly affected by events in Manchester, their grief has no such end point.
“We are working closely with national security partners to address the recommendations made by Sir John Saunders and are absolutely committed to identifying opportunities for improvement in order to protect the public to the very best of our ability.
“In the face of an enduring terrorist threat, it is our responsibility to evolve, and the experiences of victims, survivors and their families remain at the centre of those efforts.”
