Abstract

Police Accountability Community Teams (PACT) were introduced in 2002 in an attempt to create consultation within local communities between residents and the local police service. The Teams were proclaimed as ensuring local area commanders were accountable to local communities and that communities would be able to help with developing solutions to reduce crime and the fear of crime. Yet over two years on from their implementation it appears that PACT has had a limited effect on local policing. This article looks at the reasons why PACT is failing and what needs to be done in order to encourage community participation in local policing.
