In this week’s edition senior police leaders have described the expected cuts to police funding as ‘madness’ and ‘dangerous’, and we have a report by the London Assembly criticising the Metropolitan Police Service’s ability to procure an outsourcing deal, revealing 445 police staff posts are to be outsourced to SopraSteria. Lots more news plus features this week include Kenny MacAskill discussing the gulf between on and off-sales of alcohol, Dr Paul Bernal reports on the initial discussions of the National Police Chiefs’ Council’s independent panel on policing the internet and Will Jennings, Emily Gray and Stephen Farrall explore the relationship between crime and public priorities. Stephan Grimmelikhuijsen and Albert Meijer ask if Twitter can strengthen police legitimacy and we ask experts at Europol why encryption is becoming an increasingly important issue to detectives.
