The presentation will explore the penetration of politics throughout policing against the traditional model of shared governance. Politics is essential in the management of policing:

upward, concerning government;
downward, with respect to internal management and
sideways, with respect to the public.

The conclusion is that issue of political accountability needs to be rethought.
