College of Policing Digest

The College of Policing Digest is produced monthly by our Legal Services team as an environmental scanning publication.

​​​​​​​​​​​The Digest provides the latest news on matters relating to operational policing practice and criminal justice.

It is an invaluable resource for those responsible for strategic decision-making, operational planning, and police and law enforcement training. It is particularly informative for students and operational officers, as well as those involved in other areas outside of policing or those who have an interest in policing and criminal justice.

Every edition contains summaries of the key developments in police law and practice, including:

  • new legislation, statutory instruments and case law

  • recently published government reports and initiatives

  • latest statistical bulletins.

The March edition of the Digest includes articles on:

  • Operation of police powers under TACT 2000
  • Issues in detective policing
  • The delay to the ‘Pursuits’ bill
  • Apprenticeships in policing.

The edition also includes summaries of recent statutory instruments. Our case law features judgements on the tainted gifts regime and the most recent development in the Worboys matter.
