This is the sixth Commencement Order made under the Policing and Crime Act 2009 (“the Act”), and it also amends the Policing and Crime Act 2009 (Commencement No. 5) Order 2010 (“the previous Order”).
Article 2 brings section 109 of the Act (application of aspects of UK law to SOCA employees working abroad) into force on 6th November 2010.
Article 3 amends article 4 of the previous Order by replacing the reference there to section 2 of the Act with a reference to section 2(2). The effect is that only section 2(2), and not the remainder of section 2, comes into force on 1st September 2010.
Section 2(2) of the Act amends the Police Act 1996 by omitting section 54(3A) of that Act, which allowed the Secretary of State to delegate to the chief inspector of constabulary certain functions in relation to the approval of appointments of senior police officers and the giving of consent for a deputy chief constable to exercise or perform the powers or duties of a chief constable. The remainder of section 2 of the Act (which will not now come into force on 1st September 2010) provides for the constitution and functions of a Police Senior Appointments Panel.
