Police and Crime Commissioners

Welcome to my Police and Crime Commissioners Scoop.

 

It contains a generic mix of articles, gathered through twitter, the blogs I follow and suggestions from the Scoop.it curation tool, that catch my attention as interesting to me and possibly other people.

 

You can use the filter option just above this introduction to search for a particular topic within the numerous articles collated here. The information dates back to the 22nd of February 2012.
