Ethical Leadership and PCCs
  • Nothing is inevitable. But on the shoulders of
    the first generation of commissioners (and Chief
    Constables.AL) rests the heavy burden of laying
    the foundations for a system of policing that
    gives voters some of what they want, but is also
    capable of explaining why gut instinct can be
    wrong.Editorial, Guardian, 9th January 2012
  • What the public want v What the public
  • - The best possible!
  • Decisions about the allocation of resources in
    the criminal justice system are better made by
    civil servants pouring over data sets than by
    householders peering through their curtains at a
    threatening world.
