The challenges policing faces are more than financial – they’re fundamental to the way the policing is delivered. The changing nature of demand for services is putting increasing pressure on forces. Devolution is leading forces to work with partner agencies in new ways. Data and technology, which can drive better understanding of trends and individuals, need forces to undergo seismic cultural shifts.
Our insight into these issues starts from our long experience of working with forces throughout the UK. But the solutions to their challenges need to be based on more than this. That’s why we are bringing our expertise across sectors, countries and topics to bear in generating new ideas for the police sector. We are talking to our other specialists to ask: how can the success of organisations outside policing, or from other countries, be used to improve the future of policing, to make it better for citizens and for society?
At KPMG, our brightest people are reimagining public services, and the pages below are sharing that thinking for policing. Intended as a conversation-starter, we want to know what you think of our ideas as we work together to reform the public sector.

Even dynamic authorities may find it difficult to drive growth at a scale and pace sufficient to make up for the loss of central support.
