    • The CEO of the messaging app Signal claims to have hacked the phone-cracking tools used by police in Britain and around the world to extract information from seized devices.

      If crims can leave code on a phone that could compromise the tools police use to examine them, what implications could this have for digital forensics, reliability of evidence?

    • , harassing, bullying, victimising, offensive or otherwise incompatible with policing principle.”

      And also:

      “Do no publish online or elsewhere, or offer for publication, any material that might undermine your own reputation or that of the policing profession or might run the risk of damaging public confidence in the police service.”

      Forces have their own policies but the IOPC has effectively ordered forces to direct officers to the College of Policing rules.

      To hammer the point home, the IOPC listed a string of cases where individual or groups of officers have broken the rules.

      Among the cases dealt with by the IOPC was a West Midlands PC who was dismissed in 2019 for gross misconduct after making comments on a personal social media account that were deemed to be racist and sexist.

      A police officer resigned from Cheshire Constabulary in November 2019 after being found to have contacted, via social media, three members of the public whom they had met during the course of their policing duties and proceeded to pursue a personal relationship with each of them.

      In 2018 an independent panel concluded a South Wales police officer had a case for gross misconduct, with a sanction of a final written warning. The ruling came after a member of the public reported a number of potentially offensive Facebook posts.

      But the biggest number of conduct cases have been focused on private WhatsApp groups were comments or images have been shared that break the rules

      In the latest incident revealed this week, a group of Devon and Cornwall officers were subject to investigation after an altered image of US murder victim George Floyd was shared.

      A group of officers were investigated last year after sharing images of a murder site on a private group.

    • The establishment of a regular police reserve will retain specialist skills and plug the gaps left by the disappearance of the 30-year-career officer, argue Chris Sharwood-Smith and Dr Rob Gurney.


      Date - 7th April 2021
      By - Chris Sharwood-Smith and Dr Rob Gurney

      The changes to the UK Police Service since the turn of the 21st Century have been dramatic. New innovation coupled with a need to drastically reduce costs during a protracted period of financial restraint has brought in the need for a whole change in concept around the recruitment and retention of officers.
