Strategic Review of Policing in England and Wales

The independent Strategic Review of Policing in England and Wales, chaired by Sir Michael Barber, aims to set a long term strategic direction for a police service capable of meeting the challenges of the 21st century.  

About the Review

Launched by the Police Foundation in September 2019, the Strategic Review of Policing in England and Wales set out to examine how crime, fear of crime and other threats to public safety are changing and assess the ability of the police to meet these challenges, as part of a wider strategic response. This far-reaching independent review, the first of its kind in many years, was chaired by Sir Michael Barber and guided by an Advisory Board of former senior police officers, politicians and leading academics. The overall aim of the Review was to set a long-term strategic vision for English and Welsh policing. The concluding report presents 56 recommendations for a modern police service capable of meeting the challenges of the 21st century.

It’s time to take crime prevention seriously

Few would argue with the notion that ‘prevention is better than cure’. Politicians of all parties agree on the importance of preventing social problems escalating into crises. One would struggle to find a police force, health service or local authority strategic document that does not call for more effort to be focused on preventative work.
