2010 Annual Conference: Policing and the recession

The Police Foundation’s first annual conference addressed some of the practical and ethical issues the police will face in an era of public service disinvestment.

Reduced public spending and tighter budget controls, not to mention policing the Olympics, will pose serious challenges for the police service but may also offer valuable opportunities.

The conference brought together representatives from the police service and police authorities with suppliers from the private sector to identify the advantages and disadvantages of collaboration. They also explored how the police service could benefit more from the resources currently available.
