The Future of Policing:
what are the challenges facing policing today?


  • The Rt Hon Kit Malthouse MP, Minister of State for Crime, Policing and Probation
  • Sir Michael Barber, Chair – The Strategic Review of Policing in England & Wales
  • Lisa Townsend, Surrey Police and Crime Commissioner
  • Robert Colvile, Director – Centre for Policy Studies (Chair)



In early March, the independent Strategic Review of Policing in England & Wales will be published. In a world where we are witnessing profound shifts in society and in the patterns of crime due to ever-developing technology, this review will aim to offer a new strategy for the police service in order for them to better tackle crime.


In this webinar, our panel will discuss the challenges facing policing today and what the future of the service might look like. With perspectives from the Minister, Chair of the independent review and a PCC, the discussion will seek to investigate the current state of policing from a variety of perspectives ahead of the review which will seek to answer these challenges.


We are delighted to welcome the Rt Hon Kit Malthouse MP, Sir Michael Barber and Lisa Townsend on the panel where they will explore what should be the role of the police, the challenges ahead for the service, and what we can expect from the Strategic Review.
