Reinventing the Police Station. With the police estate undergoing dramatic change, this report examines the ways police buildings shape people?s confidence in the police, their fear of crime and sense of security, and identifies means of raising standards in the design and management of the police estate. The police have a proud design history, but they have failed, recently, to build on it. All too often police facilities send off the wrong messages about the attitudes and working of the police. Reinventing the Police Station argues that there needs to be something close to a revolution in the way the police and the Home Office approach police buildings ? that they have to become much more sensitive to the contribution the estate can make to strengthening relations between the police and citizens, and reassuring the public.

Tough Love A Critique of the Domestic Violence, Crime, & Victims Bill 2003. This pamphlet will examine the magnitude of domestic violence problems and what risks and benefits the proposed legal measures will present. Significant issues are raised, not just for the victims of domestic violence, but also for the entire criminal justice system. Will the new bill pose a serious threat to civil liberties? Will the intended measures to support victims be truly effective or are they mere window dressing? The author considers the dangers of introducing a rigid system to deal with the wide range of domestic violence offences, and suggests an alternative, more flexible approach.
