Alan Marlow is a freelance researcher and consultant. He is a visiting Professor at the University of Luton. He was formerly a senior police officer. At the end of November 2002 the Government published its National Policing Plan (Home Office, 2002). It is a highly prescriptive document setting out targets and the structures by which performance can be assessed. The immediate response from the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) was to attack the plan for its stimulation of further bureaucracy and because it left little room for local flexibility. The statement in paragraph 10.1 of the plan gives some weight to that view: ‘The national priorities Alan Marlow described above will, in most cases, also be local priorities’. For crime and Editor disorder partnerships there is an exhortation to ‘engage more effectively in partnership working’. There should be a synchronisation of policing plans, crime and disorder reduction plans and drug misuse prevention strategies (paragraph 4.4). Guidance will be issued to local authorities on how they may satisfy the statutory requirement (Section 17, Crime & Disorder Act, 1998) that crime and disorder reduction be built into the delivery of local services.
