Forcing the issue: new labour, new localism and the democratic renewal of police accountability

Forcing the issue: new labour, new localism and the democratic renewal of police accountability
Forcing the issue: new labour, new localism and the democratic renewal of police accountability
The purpose of this article is to evaluate proposals contained in the government’s Green Paper Policing: Building Safer Communities Together (Home Office 2003) and the White Paper Building Communities: Beating Crime (Home Office 2004) to re-invigorate the structure of police governance in the UK. After providing a brief overview of New Labour’s initial attempts to modernise British policing, I analyse why and how the broader political discourse of ‘new localism’ came to frame the unfolding debate about the need to revitalise police accountability. The article then offers a critical evaluation of the latest Home Office attempt to reorganise the democratic structure of police governance in the UK.

Abstract

The purpose of this article is to evaluate proposals contained in the government’s Green Paper Policing: Building Safer Communities Together (Home Office 2003) and the White Paper Building Communities: Beating Crime (Home Office 2004) to re-invigorate the structure of police governance in the UK. After providing a brief overview of New Labour’s initial attempts to modernise British policing, I analyse why and how the broader political discourse of ‘new localism’ came to frame the unfolding debate about the need to revitalise police accountability. The article then offers a critical evaluation of the latest Home Office attempt to reorganise the democratic structure of police governance in the UK.
