The role of police: changing times [WP1118]

We discuss the role of the police in changing times, the demand and need for the police to be a public service and how the police respond in times of threat particularly from terrorism. We also talk about changes the police force is going through.

This is the first podcast recorded during our meeting to discuss The Big Society and Europe.
