BPA announces bold initiative to review DPE

On the 22nd of September the BPA announced that it was leading a bold initiative to review the way that Decriminalised Parking Enforcement (DPE) is operated throughout the country.

BPA.jpgThe BPA are delighted to announce that they have appointed Richard Childs, ex-Chief Constable of Lincolnshire Police to undertake the review. Mr Childs is well qualified to lead this independent review having spent the last 10 years specifically working on public policing policy and with the private security industry. The BPA have set-up a steering group to support Mr Childs.

A tight timescale has been set for the review which will be completed by the end of April 2005, in order that any recommendations agreed can be put to Government for inclusion in their Statutory Guidance Notes for the Traffic Management Act 2004.

Clearly for the review process to be a success Mr Childs needs to receive evidence from people in the industry. Now is your time to contribute to the debate and make a difference to how DPE is implemented and managed throughout the U.K.. The fundamental question we are looking for answers to, is:

• Do you think DPE is being operated effectively and fairly? if not, what suggestions do you have for improving the provision of this service?

The steering group have asked Mr Childs to examine 4 specific issues:

• How can the quality of service and levels of performance to the motoring public and the public at large be improved

• How can the professionalism of staff be enhanced

• What is the role of local authorities and service providers in the managing and implementation of DPE

• What is existing best practice and how can this be disseminated effectively
