Policing in the United Kingdom is, without any sense of irony in the dock.

Phone hacking, "pleb-gate", the Mark Kennedy debacle, Hillsborough and most recently the Ellison Report undermining the police's role in the McPherson Inquiry following the murder of Stephen Lawrence.

Add to this the erosion of police immunity from suit and increased accountability under the Human Rights Act 1998 and British policing may be about to undergo radical reform.


McKay Law has put together a day of training and presentations to look at these issues and attempt to search out the good practice amidst the bad, seek out where things went wrong and how, with hindsight these could be avoided in the future.


Expert speakers in the field of police professional standards will deliver presentations in topical subjects, including:

policing and the media: what can be learned from how the police interact with journalists;

undercover policing: where it all went wrong and how to make it right;

ethics: theory and practice;

moving on from pleb-gate: the truth, the lies and the legacy;

intelligent policing: addressing extra-juridical criticism of police systems of managing and handling intelligence;

the John Warboys case: investigation of crime and human rights liability


With speakers from a range of experience and backgrounds, this will be a stimulating day that all officers of varying ranks will benefit from, but particularly those involved in evolving policy, policing standards and managing and authorising operations.
