This paper strongly endorses the decision by the Prime Minister to respond to the decline of policing who on his first day in office announced an uplift of police officer numbers by 20,000 over three years.

Policy recommendations:

  • Use the National Policing Board to drive strategic changes to policing, strengthening law enforcement at local, regional and national levels.

  • Create a National Crime Analysis Unit to monitor crime trends and inform the delivery of a National Police Resource plan for the uplift of 20,000 police officers.

  • Co-ordinate a national recruitment process for the additional 20,000 officers in order to streamline and speed up the recruitment with new incentives offered to applicants.
