The Police Journal


Policing is the visible face of the law, under increasing scrutiny from government and the community as a whole. With the growing pressure to demonstrate best value through evidence-based policy and practice, The Police Journal is invaluable for all decision-makers and policy-makers, both within the police service and those working with the profession.

The Police Journal discusses issues at the heart of policing and offers practical advice on how to tackle them. Written by experts and read by the decision-makers, it offers commentary on a wide range of subjects: police procedure, IT, crime statistics, current practices, and new laws affecting policy. It will prove invaluable to senior level policemen and increasingly those involved in private security organisations, those involved in training and operational matters, academics interested in criminal justice (in particular those analysing police strategies and tactics), and anyone interested in criminology in general.

Footnotes, where present, are bi-directional. This journal, along with other available UK law journals, can be searched in the All UK Law Journals file.
