Policing The Police: An Insider’s Guide To The Police Complaints System

On Friday 22 April 2022, in recognition of Stephen Lawrence Day, I was invited to give a talk on the police complaints system to students at Arden University.

The lecture has now been uploaded to YouTube and covers the following topics:

  • Introduction – Why policing oversight matters
  • The police complaints system: 1970s onwards
  • The murder of Stephen Lawrence on 22 April 1993
  • The work of modern policing oversight bodies
  • Examples of real investigations (sensitive content)
  • Corruption within the system
  • Conclusions
