Posted October 11th, 2010 in constitutional law, parliament, podcasts by sally

Football and domestic violence – BBC Law in Action

Posted June 23rd, 2010 in crime prevention, domestic violence, podcasts, police, sport by sally

“At the half way stage of the World Cup, police forces across the UK are paying unsolicited visits to men with a record of domestic violence. It’s a strategy recommended by the Association of Chief Police Officers. According to ACPO, research shows that domestic violence peaks during big sporting events like the World Cup. Many police forces have therefore concluded that it makes sense to let potential perpetrators know they are being watched. As Joshua Rozenberg finds when he sees the policy in action in Nottinghamshire, police on the ground belive the policy is working. But a closer look at the evidence casts doubt on whether there really is such a link and traces the idea that there is back to an urban myth from the United States.”

Owning your image – BBC Law in Action

Posted June 9th, 2010 in photography, podcasts, police, privacy by sally

“Joshua Rozenberg investigates how the police, the courts and those responsible for protecting personal data strike a balance between the need to safeguard civil liberties and the police’s responsibility to prevent crime. Are there enough safeguards to protect the public from being unfairly linked with criminals? Is maintaining public order being used as an excuse to engineer a surveillance society? Or are the authorities simply taking the minimum steps to ensure a determined and well-organised minority of protesters bent on disruption do not wreck the lives of the law-abiding majority?”
