In this week’s edition news includes a report of rape campaigner Jill Saward’s death, details of a survey commissioned by the Metropolitan Police Federation asking officers if they wish to be routinely armed, and the launch of a legal challenge to the Investigatory Powers Act. There is lots more news and features include an in-depth interview with Ian Dyson, a look at how the sensitisation of society effects policing, developments in forensic science for sex crimes, a look at how to successfully deliver an accredited and professional workforce, and how a force used an Amazon Echo to help solve a murder. We also have the latest criminal cases from Criminal Law Week.

Saying what is needed
Ian Dyson explains how forces’ requirements are being coordinated to improve ICT developments across the service and ensure suppliers are better able to add their expertise.
