How Do the Police ‘Police’ in the UK?
The policing landscape has changed dramatically in the UK and this book sets out to explore the major themes affecting UK policing in the early twenty-first century. The main themes elicited from the research were around police governance and the police response to increased demand against a backdrop of austerity measures. New policing organisations, such as the Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) along with changing crime demands, accountability and funding measures provided the conditions for the interviews and research. The fallout from recent police scandals, such as Hillsborough and Plebgate, provided a further backdrop for the interviews. The 89 interviewees were concerned about issues such as cybercrime and the police response along with the threat of marauding terrorist attacks as witnessed in Paris in 2015.
