Enforcement & Reconciliation.
In this edition of ‘Talking Crime’, Danny Shaw speaks to two influential figures about ways of addressing historical wrongdoing and injustice – and how policing can play its part.
It follows a report from the Cumberland Lodge educational foundation, ’Towards Justice: Law Enforcement and Reconciliation’.
A former Bishop of Liverpool, the Right Reverend James Jones chaired an independent panel examining documentation relating to the 1989 Hillsborough disaster in which 97 football fans died. The Panel’s report in 2012 paved the way for fresh inquests which led to findings of ‘unlawful killing’. The Bishop is an independent adviser to the Health Secretary and leads the Independent Commission into the Experience of Victims and Long-Term Prisoners.
Detective Superintendent Paula Bickerdike joined West Yorkshire Police in 2006 and is now head of the force’s safeguarding central governance unit. She was selected to speak about the police code of ethics at the Cumberland Lodge Police Seminar in 2015 and was a member of the steering committee for the law enforcement and reconciliation discussions which led to the publication of the report. Paula spoke to Policing TV in a personal capacity.
