NABCP partnerships are accredited to ensure that they maintain standards of management and operation and comply fully with current data protection legislation and guidance.  Accreditation takes place every two years and all partnerships are expected to achieve and maintain that standard.  This provides their members, police and other agencies with the confidence that personal data is being managed professionally and that the sharing of intelligence about the activities of local and travelling offenders will only be used for the purposes of the prevention and detection of crime and the prosecution of offenders.


There are four regionally-based SBA assessors to carry out this important function for NABCP as follows:
