Prepare for the arrival of the super cops

Theresa May’s police reform agenda will take a big step forward tomorrow with the announcement that Police and Crime Commissioners will be able to appoint overseas officers as chief constables. As I say in the Mail on Sunday, this’ll mean that successful foreign police chiefs, such as Bill Bratton the former head of the New York and Los Angeles Police Departments, can come to Britain.

If Police and Crime Commissioners take advantage of this change, the world’s most innovative police chiefs will put their skills to work in this country. This will drive up standards by bringing in the best practices from around the world.

This is part of package designed to ensure regular injections of outside talent and expertise into the police, to prevent ‘canteen culture’ taking hold. 20 people from outside the police will be able to join it at the rank of superintendent each year, and a further 80 at inspector level.

It used to be said that the police were the last great unreformed public service. But the coalition’s changes from Police and Crime Commissioners to direct entry are changing this.
