Detail

This consultation is now closed.

This consultation sets out the government’s vision for policing and how it will:

  • cut crime and protect the public
  • be more directly accountable to the public
  • offer value for money

This will be achieved through greater collaboration, the introduction of Police and Crime Commissioners, less government intervention and bureaucracy and more professional responsibility and judgement and a new policing and partnership landscape.

The elements of this consultation can broadly be divided into two parts. The first are specific commitments already made in the Coalition Agreement, where the government is not consulting on whether they should happen, but how best they can be implemented. The second are broader areas where the government is asking for views on whether and how to achieve its aims.
