This chapter examines the past police reforms and compares it to the new Conservative manifesto's position on the issue. It looks at the history of police reform by dividing it into five periods: 1964–1979 where a consensus was reached between parties regarding the matter; 1979–1990 when Conservatives reigned for four consecutive terms as majority party; 1990–1997 when discussions of the many pitfalls of the Conservative leadership with regards to police reform occurred and Labour became the majority party; and 1997–2010 which saw the Conservatives in abeyance as the Labour Party dominated.

Keywords:   law enforcement reform, Conservative Party, Labour Party, democratization, police reforms, bureaucracy
