BMT is pleased to have sponsored this report to help inform the submission to the UK’s 2019 Comprehensive Spending Review and the wider debate on meeting the costs of delivering innovative but ethical policing as we look ahead to 2030 and beyond.
As we seek to influence those that determine the shape of policing now and in the future, it is clear that the local, regional and national responses to the opportunities, threats and risks presented by digital and societal challenges needs to be intelligence-led but data-driven and carefully considered in line with Sir Robert Peel’s nine Principles of Policing, which are as true and necessary today as they ever were.
‘the dilemma of legitimacy plagues no state institutions more doggedly than the police’*
Today, probing questions are being asked about the new demands the police service is likely to face; the current state of neighbourhood policing which serves as the bedrock of British policing; whether capacity is appropriately configured and funded; and what the service’s plans are to improve efficiency and deliver effective performance in response to the changing nature of crime, a changing demographic, new demands on policing and increasing complexity.
This Cityforum report was produced following discussion with industry, academia, the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service, the Chair of the National Police Chiefs’ Council and the Director General of the National Crime Agency.
BMT is pleased to have sponsored this wide-ranging report and help inform the submission to the UK’s 2019 Comprehensive Spending Review and the wider debate on meeting the costs of delivering innovative but ethical policing as we look ahead to 2030 and beyond.
