Home Affairs Committee examines future policing priorities
1 November 2022
What does a modern police service, fit for the 2020s and beyond, look like? How will policing need to adapt to meet future challenges, and what can be done to improve confidence in policing?
The Home Affairs Committee will be exploring these issues as it holds the opening session of its new inquiry into policing priorities
Wednesday 2 November 2022
- Dr Rick Muir, Director, The Police Foundation
- Martin Hewitt QPM, Chair, National Police Chiefs’ Council
- Festus Akinbusoye, Lead for Prevention, Association of Police and Crime Commissioners
- Andy Marsh QPM, Chief Executive, College of Policing
The Committee will investigate the current demands on policing, their priorities in tackling crime and building trust with the communities they serve. It will also examine future challenges and what a modern police force will need to look like if it is to meet them. The Committee will also look at how the right balance can be struck between crime prevention, investigation and other policing functions.
