District policing partnership
What are DPPs?
"A DPP is a meaningful partnership between the district council, councillors and representatives of the local community for the purpose of monitoring the effectiveness of policing in that area. Also, the DPP will act as a forum for discussion and consultation on matters affecting the policing of the district, which it is responsible for. This will include, for example, the prioritisation of policing issues on behalf of local people."
- DPPs are only found in Northern Ireland, and were created following reccomendations made in the Patten report
