Back to Campaign for Royal Commission into Policing

Independent review to be led by Lord Stevens, who retired as commissioner of the Met in 2005.

Shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper said ministers' reforms to the service were "piecemeal" and "cackhanded" and are introducing "chaos and confusion" to the police force.

"The job of government is to act to prevent crime, not just stand back and lament crime,"

She stressed that while Labour would set it up, the review would be independent and her party would respond to its findings.
