The report has been placed in the House Library.

Sir Ronnie Flanagan was asked in April 2007 to look at further progress in this area as part of his independent review of policing, the final report of which was published on 7 February 2008. The Secretary of State for the Home Department set out her initial response to this report in her statement to the House of Commons on 7 February 2008. The Home Office, together with the National Policing Improvement Agency and other policing partners, is currently considering Sir Ronnie’s recommendations more fully and the Home Office will be setting out its response shortly.
