Introduction - let's make the police more accountable

Welcome to our blog. We oppose the principle of larger police forces. Our police need more democratic control, not less, and larger forces would be more remote.

We understand the argument that small forces may not be good at tackling large crimes. But there are other ways of tackling this besides merging forces wholesale. And most crimes are not large crimes. Most crimes are small, local crimes. Police forces need to be closer to their local communities and more accountable to them, not more remote.

We've started this blog to see if a central source of information helps in opposing the proposals. It can only be as good as its contributions, and we can't spot everything. So please comment and contribute. If you are involved in the campaigning and would like to be able to post on this blog, please get in touch.
