Project Details


The project was commissioned by a subgroup consisting of representatives of The Scottish Police Federation, the Police Federation of England & Wales, and the National Policing Improvement Agency, on behalf of The Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) of England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

It covered small, medium and large forces with an urban and rural mix. Evidence was gathered by means of a questionnaire and focus groups in the identified forces.
