Latest news on operational policing practice

​This month's legal Digest examines the Home Affairs Select Committee's recent report on police diversity.

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

It is a valuable 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.
