Business leaders 'may head police'

PUBLISHED July 21, 2004

Senior figures from businesses and the public sector could be appointed to run police forces, a report suggests.

They could also enter at superintendent or chief superintendent level to head some of the more than 400 Basic Command Units across England and Wales.
Schemes should be set up to "tap into the wealth of experience and talent" in other professions, the Inspectorate of Constabulary report suggests.
