This blog is mainly about the governance and future of policing and crime services. (Police & Crime Commissioners feature quite a lot.) But there are also posts about the wider justice system. And because I am town councillor and political activist, local & national issues are covered a little, as well.

10,000 and counting
Sometimes it feels as if hardly anyone knows or cares about the PCC elections, so I am glad to be part of the collective efforts to get the word out there that these are important elections that demand attention and action.
As always I am grateful to my fellow bloggers and scoopers who are doing their not insignificant bit too. By this I am referring to:
Sam Chapman's blog 'Top of the Cops' which has provided most valuable information and commentary on PCCs so far.
Russell Webster's 'scoopit' listings of key articles published on the net and in newspapers (both local and national), hugely useful
Steve Bachelder's 'scoopit' listing as well which publishes it's own distinct set of articles which also greatly adds to the debate.
If you don't subscribe to all three, I suggest that you do! All three can be found on twitter of course:
