A comprehensive examination of policing aimed at improving the future of the service is ‘much welcomed and long overdue’ says the national chair of the Police Federation.
The independent policing think tank The Police Foundation launched its Strategic Review of Policing in England and Wales on 10 September.
Along with other key policing partners, the Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW) will be contributing to the review which is expected to have an impact similar to the 1962 Royal Commission which laid the basis for today’s police service.
Chaired by Sir Michael Barber, it will look at how crime and other threats to public safety are changing and assess the ability of policing to respond, setting out a long-term strategic direction for the service so it is better able to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
