England and Wales[ edit ] Early history to Police development and operation trends edit ] The introduction of police forces on a national scale in England and Wales began with the Municipal Corporations Actwhich required each borough to establish a " watch committee " and thus appoint constables to "preserve the peace".
Before the advent of police authorities, the regulatory bodies for police forces confined to a single borough were these watch committees, whilst those for counties from had been "standing joint committees" after some control passed to the elected county council ; the joint committee also had magistrates.
The act abolished the old watch committee system which had come under severe criticism following several high-profile corruption scandals. The act introduced police areaswhich would be administrative counties, county boroughs or "combined police areas", consisting of combinations of counties and county boroughs, served by a single force, overseen by an independent "police authority".
The new police authorities would consist of two-thirds elected members of county or borough councils, and one-third magistrates. Under the Local Government Act the remaining borough police forces were abolished, and police authorities consisted of county councillors and magistrates in a ratio of two to one.
The Police and Magistrates' Courts Act altered the composition of the authorities with independent members being added. Typically, a police authority was made up of seventeen members — nine elected members who were drawn from the local authority or authorities for the force area, and would be reflective of the political makeup of those authorities.
The remaining eight members were called independent members, and were appointed from the local community for fixed terms of four years by the police authority itself - a long list, from applications received, was submitted by a committee of elected members and magistrates to the Home Office.
That committee then appointed the independent members from a shortlist returned by the Home Office. At least three of the police authority's independent members were magistrates. There was no difference in power or responsibility between the different types of member — there were examples of elected, independent and magistrate members chairing police authorities throughout England and Wales.
Funding[ edit ] The bulk of police funding came from the Home Office in the form of an annual grant calculated on a proportionate basis by the Home Office to take into account the differences between the 43 forces in England and Wales, which vary significantly in terms of population, geographical size and crime levels and trendsthough police authorities could also set a precept on the Council Tax to raise additional funds.
The Home Office had the power to prevent any precept increases deemed to be excessive. It was the police authority's responsibility to set the budget for the force area, which included allocating itself enough money from the overall policing budget to ensure that it can discharge its own functions effectively.
In its annual Policing Plan, a police authority was obliged to publish its budget for the year, as well as a value for money statement and to outline planned efficiency savings.
