AbstractThis chapter locates the ethos of community-oriented policing at the heart of the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) model in England and Wales and shows that the PCCs’ Police and Crime Plans should function as a key prism through which their performance should be measured. It focuses, in particular, on the Police and Crime Plans for Greater Manchester, the West Midlands and London, examining whether and to what extent they deliver a measure of community-oriented policing in practice.

The Stasi: Myth and Reality; themes in modern German historyDennis, Mike; Laporte, Norman (London: Longman/Pearson, 2003)The Stasi were a central institution of the GDR, and this book illuminates the nature and operation of the entire East German regime, addressing one of the most important topics in modern German history. Its emphasis is primarily on the key years under Erich Honecker, who was Head of State from 1976 and ousted in 1989.The book looks at all aspects of the control, operation and impact of the security police - their methods, targets, structure, accountability, and in particular the crucial question of how far they were an arm of the ruling communist party or were themselves a virtually autonomous political actor.
Rethinking the law and politics of democratic police accountabilityMcDaniel, John; School of Social, Historical and Political Studies, Faculty of Social Sciences, Mary Seacole Building, University of Wolverhampton, Wolverhampton, UK (SAGE Publications ltd, 2017-01-06)This paper evaluates the work and impact of a number of Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) in England and Wales and attempts to refocus public discourse and scrutiny on their Police and Crime Plans as a key prism through which their performance should be measured. Drawing upon the literature published by various PCCs, the Stevens Commission, the Home Affairs Committee and numerous academics, the paper will argue that a major reform of democratic police accountability in England and Wales is needed. Due to the often voluminous and piecemeal nature of the documents published on the PCCs’ websites, the textual analysis is limited to the Police and Crime Plans for Greater Manchester, the West Midlands and the London Metropolitan area
