Synopsis:
In the context of ongoing police reform this path-breaking book draws insights from US policing in relation to governance, accountability and democratic representation. Exploring the significant influences of Britain on the system of policing that developed in the USA, this book critically appraises the influence of American politics and policing on the system of policing now evident and evolving in England and Wales. With a view to making recommendations for the future structure and makeup of policing in England and Wales and as the first term of directly elected police and crime commissioners comes to a close, Floyd Millen reviews the influences and the progress of police reforms, positing that seeking to enhance or recapture police legitimacy by combining the use of the ballot box to direct and influence policing has been shown in the USA to have many virtues, but also carries inherent and potentially irreconcilable challenges.
