Call for Evidence

Phase Two

The Strategic Review of Policing has launched a Call for Evidence. This is the second part of its major, independent Review of Policing in England and Wales.

The overall aim of the Review is to set the long-term strategic vision for English and Welsh policing and present substantial recommendations for a modern service capable of meeting the challenges of the 21st century.

We are currently working on Phase Two which will look at the (broadly defined) capabilities the police will need to meet the specific challenges defined in Phase One of the Review. This will include the workforce, their relationship with the public, accountability mechanisms, structures, and resources. 

We are inviting responses to ten questions which cover the following areas:

  • Legitimacy and confidence
  • Prevention and collaboration
  • The future police workforce
  • Resources (funding and technology)
  • Organisational structures
  • Governance

You are invited to submit information, commentary, views and arguments in response to one, some or all of the questions using the form which can be downloaded below. The closing date for submissions is 12th April 2021.
