Overview

The police service in England and Wales is facing major challenges in its financing, political oversight and reorganisation of its structures. Current economic conditions have created a wholly new environment whereby cost saving is permitting hitherto unthinkable changes in the style and means of delivery of policing services. In the context of these proposed changes Lord Stevens, formerly Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service was asked to chair an Independent Commission looking into the future of policing. The Commission has a wide ranging remit and the papers in this book offer up-to-date analysis of contemporary problems from the novel perspective of developing a reform agenda to assist the Commission.

Bringing together contributions from both key academic thinkers and police professionals, this book discusses new policing paradigms, lays out a case for an evidence-based practice approach and draws attention to developing areas such as terrorism, public order and hate crime.

Policing is too important to be left to politicians, as the health of a democracy may be judged by the relationship between the police and the public. The aim of this book is to question and present analyses of problems offer new ideas and propose realistically achievable solutions without being so timid as to preserve the status quo. It will be of interest to both academics and students in the fields of criminology and policing studies, as well as professionals in the policing service, NGOs and local authority organisations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
‘A comprehensive collection of essays provocatively and imaginatively probing all aspects of contemporary policing. The authors are a well-chosen, excellent mix of highly respected, well-established authorities and brilliant new talents, all writing at the top of their game, with lucidity, freshness, and panache. This book is the essential entry ticket for understanding and contributing with credibility to policing debates, and is vital reading for politicians, policy-makers, practitioners, researchers, academics and their students.’ - Robert Reiner, Emeritus Professor of Criminology Law Department, LSE, UK

‘Policing is always topical but never more so than today. Just when crime trends are declining, the police face daunting new challenges in securing public confidence, the support of policymakers, and the resources they need to do "the job". Jennifer Brown has assembled a genuinely stellar team of authorities on every dimension of policing’s contemporary dilemmas, who deliver a substantial step further in our evidence-based understanding of this vital field.’ - Nigel Fielding, Professor of Sociology, University of Surrey, UK
