The Strategic Review of Policing in England and Wales will examine how crime, fear of crime and other threats to public safety are changing and assess the ability of the police to respond.

The work of the Review is guided by an Advisory Board which includes former senior police officers, politicians and leading academics.

The Review began with a call for evidence from across the government, the police service, academia, business and community groups.

A programme of events will be hosted across the country to enable police officers and members of the public to have their say about the future of policing.

The Police Foundation expects to publish a final report in June 2021 and interim papers during the course of the review.
