Community Engagement: The Police Perspective

Chief Constable Simon Cole

ACPO lead for Local Policing and Partnerships Business Area

ACPO lead for Mental Health and Disability Portfolio



The ability of the police to perform their duties is dependent upon the public approval of police actions. Police must secure the willing co-operation of the public in voluntary observation of the law to be able to secure and maintain the respect of the public.

The degree of co-operation of the public that can be secured diminishes proportionately to the necessity of the use of physical force. Police seek and preserve public favour not by catering to public opinion, but by constantly demonstrating absolute impartial service to the law.

Robert Peel

‘Social Media isn’t good, or bad. It just is. It can help rioters to organise, and it can help the police connect with communities. It isn’t the answer to improving police-community relations, nor the mechanism by which the police should engage with the public. It is, however, an effective new avenue to reach people who want to understand, and engage with, policing in their areas’

Kate Lloyd, Delivery Analyst, NPIA
