James Hart, a former Commissioner of Police for the City of London, provides an in-depth view of policing in the United Kingdom, covering what policing is, changes already in place, and giving a concise view on what more can be done to improve or change from his unique perspective as a former Police Commissioner.

The public perspective of the police is discussed, including how impacts on how police services are provided, using ‘Policing by consent' as the main focus point for UK police services.

The theories on potential changes are from his unique experience. James Hart brings in his national and international experience of working in differing police cultures and environments to provide reasoned views on how improvements could be made.

The reasoned arguments for change in policing policies and procedures and the UK policing principles and practices are also examined in some detail from a police perspective.
