Police & Crime Commissioner for West Yorkshire

The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) of West Yorkshire, Mark Burns Williamson, plays a lead role in the governance of the National Police Air Service (NPAS) and chairs the NPAS National Strategic Board. Because NPAS is a concept rather than a legal entity, it cannot own property or employ people - this has to be done by the PCC and the Chief Constable (CC) in West Yorkshire on behalf of the rest of England and Wales. The Office of the PCC for West Yorkshire owns the airframes and the contracts under which NPAS operates while the CC is the employer of the staff.
