The Democratic Governance of Policing: The Role and Implications of Elected Police and Crime Commissioners

17 January 2013 | 9.30am to 4.30pm | Conference
The Liberty Building, School of Law, University of Leeds

Sponsored by the British Society of Criminology, Policing Network and the Security and Justice Group of the ‘Building Sustainable Societies’ Initiative of the University of Leeds.

The Centre for Criminal Justice Studies is hosting this one day conference to explore policy, practice and research issues concerning the future governance of policing in the light of the arrival of the first tranche of directly elected Police and Crime Commissioners in England and Wales.

The introduction of Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) represents the most significant reform of police governance in over 50 years.  This timely conference will provide an opportunity to reflect on and consider the role and implications of PCCs within the constitutional framework of police and crime governance.

The conference will bring together key national and international speakers from a variety of organisations as well as academic researchers, elected officials, policy-makers and practitioners to contribute to debates concerning this important police reform and its ramifications for the future of policing.
