Fitting the Bill: Local Policing for the 21st Century

By Jonathan McClory and Barry Loveday. Edited by Gavin Lockhart. Policy Exchange’s fourth report on policing, investigates whether, and to what extent, increased local autonomy for the police could improve policing. Led by Barry Loveday, one of this country’s leading experts on police reform, the research team asked all local police commanders in England and Wales to identify factors which would improve the quality of policing. It was the most comprehensive survey of its kind for five years, and the responses it elicited were revealing.
