Rt Hon Keith Vaz MP, Chairman of the Committee, said:

"The policing in the 21st century inquiry has been an extremely in-depth and thorough look at modern policing."

"We have looked at modern factors which have had an impact on policing such as high levels of alcohol-related crime and immigration; we have looked at funding; the role of PCSOs; community engagement and public perceptions of crime and the police. I hope that the Government will seriously consider the recommendations that we will make."
