In this week’s edition we have news of Police Federation of England and Wales chair Steve White’s resignation ahead of a scheduled no confidence vote, Police Superintendents’ Association of England and Wales president Gavin Thomas decries the current workforce model as “unsustainable”, and a study by the Children’s Society has revealed around 40 per cent of ten to 17-year-olds are worried about being targeted by criminals. There is lots more news and features including a look at how glitter can be used to solve crimes, Ian Bell explains how the National Enabling Programme will help achieve Policing Vision 2025 through wide-scale public sector collaboration, and a look into whether the police service is taking false rape allegations as seriously as it should. We also explore the range of outcomes following a conviction for manslaughter, Patrick Moulsdale explains why mediation is a necessity for forces, and we look at the sharp increase in firearms seizures following a number of terror attacks across Europe. Leaving a mark Although rare, false rape claims can have a devastating impact on the accused, however, some people are asking if the service is taking malicious allegations as seriously as it should. Organising against terror The recent surge in firearm seizures has led to the coming together of law enforcement agencies to restrict the availability to both organised criminals and terrorists alike in a way that has never been seen before. Death sentence In the first of a series of articles explaining the complex world of sentencing, Police Professional explains the wide range of possible outcomes following a conviction for manslaughter. All that glitters With the latest fashion trends, opportunities for forensic practitioners to solve crimes could be enhanced, according to trace experts. Enabling connections The strategic ambition of wide-scale public sector collaboration could be much closer as a result of work to provide access to information across the country backed by a centre of excellence in cyber security, explains Ian Bell. Settling values The cost of employment tribunals could escalate following a Supreme Court ruling, which is why Patrick Moulsdale urges forces to consider their use of mediation and take steps to close the gap between values and behaviour.
