College publishes invaluable resource for police planning

This article appears in the April 2014 edition of the College newsletter.

​The Digest is produced every month and aims to capture and consolidate topical and key issues, both current and future, that affect all areas of policing.

It is an invaluable resource for those responsible for strategic decision-making, operational planning and police training. The legal sections are often particularly informative for trainers, students and operational officers.

Every edition contains a summary of issues relating to police law, operational policing practice and criminal justice, including new legislation, statutory instruments and case law.

This month's edition includes reports of cases on:

  • the impact of the Human Rights Act 1998 and the conduct of effective investigations in cases of serious sexual assault
  • the procedure on an application for disclosure of an Information in support of a search warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.

It also features articles on:

  • the final IPCC report of its review into the procedure for investigating deaths
  • the report of the Independent Review of the Police Federation
  • the Home Office report of the Ellison Independent Review
  • the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014
  • the IPCC consultation on police post-incident management
