What are the alternatives to policing?

Date: 
Monday, 27 October, 2014

On 22 October the Centre held an event which aimed to stimulate debate about alternatives to policing in Britain. Professor Tim Hope of the University of Salford, and Dr Waqas Tufail of the University of Liverpool, led the discussion by introducing papers outlining which functions the police carry out poorly.

A discussion followed about possible alternative responses to social problems. This event forms part of our drive to get people thinking about alternatives to the criminal justice system.

Tim and Waqas' slides from the presentation can be downloaded below. A storify of the Twitter activity surrounding the event can be found here.
