Cyprus Police Chief Zacharias Chrysostomou will become the first non-British police official to attend National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) which will see 43 police chiefs from England and Wales converge in London to discuss the fight against terrorism and corruption.
The Council meeting is taking place on July 12 and 13 and Chrysostomou is attending on the invitation of the British Sovereign Base Area (SBA) Chief Constable Chris Eyre.
Chrysostomou will become the first non-British police chief to attend the meeting.

- Three police officers suspended following airport fiasco
- May to urge world leaders to close terror funding loopholes
The meeting’s agenda includes discussions on terrorism, policing and personnel, amongst other issues.
British newspaper The Guardian last month reported it had learned the police chiefs will consider the possibility of offering a gun to every frontline police officer in England and Wales to counter the threat of a marauding terrorist attack.
Media sources say Chrysostomou has also been invited to discuss corruption, reform, raised crime and contemporary training with the other delegates.
