The Police and Crime Commissioner and/or on behalf of Durham Constabulary have entered into a number of collaborative agreements since November 2012.
Where appropriate, and for security details, a copy of the contract may not be published, however brief details about the benefits of the contract will be provided.
A current example of collaboration with partners is the Evolve programme. Evolve is a three-way collaboration with Durham Constabulary, Cleveland Police and North Yorkshire Police. Through the programme, each of the police services are exploring ways to work together across organisational boundaries, in order to increase operational resilience, improve services for communities and achieve financial savings.
