A Future for Policing in England and Wales

This chapter focuses on the Labour Party and their history of law enforcement reforms during their three consecutive reigns as majority, 1997–2010. It describes Tony Blair's rise through the ranks and his tough stance on policing, which eventually became the basis for the Crime and Disorder Act of 1998. It also examines the party's reforms throughout its consecutive government and sets out the crime statistics during the thirteen-year reign of the Labour Party. It examines briefly how the Labour Party's reforms failed due to increased bureaucracy and explains the status of policing in 2010.

Keywords:   Labour Party, Tony Blair, law enforcement reforms, British law enforcement, policing, Crime and Disorder Act 1998, bureaucracy, 2010 General Elections
