The Police Foundation and KPMG brought together a select group of decision makers from across the policing community for the third in a series of policing policy dinners to consider the future of neighbourhood policing and how it can deliver locally preventative solutions at a time of austerity. The following questions were considered:
- What has happened to neighbourhood policing to date and what are the implications of new models for policing local communities?
- What role do neighbourhood officers have in tackling complex threats, such as cybercrime, fraud and terrorism, and our neighbourhood teams currently doing this?
- How can neighbourhood teams be maintained in an ongoing context of constrained finances?
- Where has neighbourhood policing achieved positive outcomes and can these examples of best practice be applied more widely?
