Home Affairs Committee takes evidence on police response to vulnerable people and neighbourhood policing

On Tuesday 1st May, as part of its inquiry into Policing for the Future, the Home Affairs Committee will take evidence on the police response to vulnerable people, including individuals with mental health problems and those who go missing.

The session will also examine neighbourhood policing, including the relationship between the size of the police workforce and police-community relations. Issues likely to be covered include:

  • Police interaction with vulnerable people, including safeguarding work
  • Policing and mental health
  • The rise in missing person reports
  • The impact of police funding cuts on neighbourhood policing, and
  • The efficacy of different neighbourhood policing models
