Online Police and Policing Research Discussion Group Talk: A New Mode of Protection. Redesigning policing and public safety for the 21stcentury


Talk Description: 


The Strategic Review of Policing in England and Wales is a major independent review of the future of policing which will publish its final report on 8th March. In this talk the Director of the Police Foundation Rick Muir will set out its findings and recommendations.  He will argue that policing alone, and as currently configured, cannot tackle the range and complexity of modern public safety challenges.  In order to meet these challenges we need to redesign our public safety institutions, including the police who will require new capabilities and a reformed organisational platform.
