Edinburgh Executive Sessions in Policing

The challenges of localism within national policing arrangements: the Netherlands and Scotland in comparative perspective

21 October, St Leonard's Hall, University of Edinburgh


There are striking similarities between policing in Scotland and the Netherlands. Both countries saw the introduction of a national police service and are going through a process of reform. Both police services are faced with the question of how to shape local policing within a national framework. In both instances, the reforms, present an opportunity to reinvent policing.

But there are also differences.

This Edinburgh Executive Session, with representatives from Police Scotland, SPA, HMICS, Scottish Government, Dutch Police, Dutch Government, and academics from Scotland and the Netherlands, was conducted under Chatham House Rules.
