The acting head of NSW Police has welcomed a decision by the Director of Public Prosecutions to appeal the prison sentence given to cop killer Mitchell Barbieri.

The DPP on Friday signalled it would fight a court's decision to reduce Barbieri's 26-year minimum sentence to 15 years for the December 2012 stabbing murder of police officer Bryson Anderson.

"We welcome today's action by the DPP. It is a positive development for the Anderson family and the force in general," Acting NSW Police Commissioner David Hudson said on Friday.

NSW Attorney-General Gabrielle Upton also welcomed the DPP's decision to appeal the reduced sentence in the High Court.

"I have spoken to Warwick Anderson, brother of murdered Inspector Bryson Anderson, and I am glad the Anderson family have been updated regularly on the case by the DPP," Ms Upton said.

"Decisions like this are not taken lightly and now it is up to the High Court to consider this important matter."
