Abstract

The Stevens Commission yesterday published its report on the police service in Britain. Tim Newburn finds a huge amount that is both admirable and ought in principle to be attractive across the political spectrum. However, the fact that this ‘independent’ Commission had links – at least in its origins – with one political party may have some impact on its reception. The absence of a clear recommendation on the future structure of policing also means that the heavy lifting in this area of police reform is still to be done.
