2.2.1 Public value in policing

In the following video, DCC Garry Forsyth of Humberside Police talks about how the police have worked with other leaders to create public value in relation to night-time alcohol consumption and its attendant problems.

This multi-agency approach to addressing the issue of public safety in the night-time economy which DCC Forsyth describes was pioneered in Leicestershire in 2006, and is now an established practice in many parts of the UK. As he outlines, the success of this kind of venture relies on leaders from several parts of the public sphere building good relationships with each other. This is an excellent example of how the police service as a whole is adopting a systems approach to the services that it provides.
