The debate on the role of the police in Britain, heated by the 1984 miners' dispute and the 1985 Handsworth and Brixton riots, gained urgency with the implementation of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act in 1986. This important volume provides an informed and accessible discussion of the changes made by the Act, and their implications. Individuals from a wide variety of viewpoints - including critics of aspects of policing, campaigners for law reform, academics, chief police officers and representatives of other police ranks - aim to inform, analyze, raise questions and offer some answers to current policing dilemmas.
