Holding the police to account

Barry Loveday

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In the Green Paper From Neighbourhood to National: Policing our Communities Together, the Home Secretary outlined a reform programme that reflects the recommendations of the Flanagan Review on policing and the recently published review by Louise Casey, Engaging Communities in Fighting Crime. Consequently the Green Paper, which provided the foundation for a new Policing and Crime Reduction Bill announced in the Queen's Speech in December, has proved to be wide-ranging and addresses, other than the issue of local police accountability, the current workforce mix, collaboration between police forces, police leadership, reducing police bureaucracy and police performance targets along with a commitment to reinforcing neighbourhood policing.
