In The Media: Police & Public Trust, Mahdi Hashi, Mo Farah ”Terror Arrest” etc


Please find below our brief discussions on a more effective police-public accountability and trust model. This comes after (months) today new headlines on reports on the dangerously broken public trust towards their local police forces in UK, see the links below. Also included are few headlines on Mahdi Hashi, Mo Farah (British Olympic Hero) mistaken detention while visiting US as a ”suspected terrorist” based on his Somali-Profile and other more interesting ”Muslims in the News”.

Our Perfect Police-Public Model
Someone asked us what might be a much effective way to strengthen contemporary UK police-public trust?
Was the elections of PCC (Police Crime Commission) a good start?
Our answers were [a] PCC is political and really has nothing with accountability or legitimacy. [b] and in terms of a more effective model for police-public trust, we would have recommended ”a jury-based model”, where local citizens are nominated on lottery approach to sit on a 24-citizens (mixed groupings, gender and age) independent policing committee, which would scrutinize every police operations, funding and other activities, before and after taking place, quarterly per year.
