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.

This year's event will particularly poignant coming so soon after the ambush and murder of two young police officers and before their funerals have taken place. Their funerals are happening next week. At the time of writing, their book of condolences has had 47,604 messages submitted.
Let us all never forget how ordinary women and men in the police service put their lives and limbs at risk everyday in order that we might live in a peaceful and safe society.
