What does it mean to provide ‘better’ policing, or to improve police productivity, in the 2020s? This report seeks to address these questions by bringing together crucial insights from a conference convened by Cumberland Lodge and
the Police Foundation.
Getting the right things done: delivering good policing in the 2020s is an interpretation of conversations held over a long weekend between senior police officers, academics, practitioners, partners and representatives from non-profit organisations and the private sector. This report sets out to capture the nuances of the debate and the differences of opinion, while bringing out key points and insights. These are not recommendations in themselves but serve to encourage others to reflect and question what they think good policing is and how we might reach it.
