Abstract

It is unsurprising, writes Barry Loveday, that calls for the abolition of the elected Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) have emanated from a number of current and former chief constables. The Stevens Report argues for their abolition using a number of reasons, one which is particularly telling: because of the perceived attack on police operational independence (to which chief officers remain, of course, entirely wedded).
