The Minister of State for Policing, Fire and Criminal Justice is a ministerial position held jointly at the Home Office and the Ministry of Justice in the Government of the United Kingdom.[1][2][3] Conservative MP Mike Penning held the portfolio between July 2014 and July 2016. He was promoted by new Prime Minister Theresa May in 2016, with his successor announced as Brandon Lewis. The post was created by the splitting of the now-defunct office of the Minister for Security, Counter-Terrorism, Crime and Policing into two new ministerial posts: Security & Counter-Terrorism and Crime & Policing. From January 2016 onwards the Minister is responsible for the portfolio for Fire and Rescue Services.
