In this week’s edition we have news of controversial data interception powers being given the green light, a crackdown on Islamic radicalisation in prisons, a defence of chief officers' pay packets and how one police officer was the sole British representative in an Olympic final.
We have lots more news this week, and features include a look at the impact of body-worn video on officers’ behaviour, a chief constable explains how the public must play a bigger part in public service and policing as he sets out his commitment to 'transform and innovate', a unique insight to gang life in London, an examination of ways 3D printing can benefit policing and a study of how a 100-year-old murder helped convict a second killer just this month.
When it comes to convincing a jury, two dimensional data can be limiting. Police Professional looks at the use of 3D printing in the presentation and discovery of evidence.
The roll-out of body-worn video cameras continues as the benefits appear conclusive. However, research is showing the way they are used can have a profound effect on officer actions and their subjects’ reactions.
A century of certainty
Judges have decided that previous or similar behaviour can be taken as evidence of serial murder, despite the legal precedence being more than 100 years old.
