This book bases its title on the UK Home Office motto: 'Building a Safe, Just and Tolerant Society'. But are these objectives always compatible - and might they need to be placed in order of priority? Is public safety a prior requisite for tolerance - and how integral to justice are tolerance and safety? To build and sustain a society that is tolerant safe and respects other fundamental principles is a key challenge of the modern era: and the theme of this book. From the authors of the acclaimed Police Leadership in the 21st Century (Waterside Press, 2003). With a Foreword by Conor Gearty plus other expert contributions . The police service of a modernising democracy needs to be sure of its ethos and clear in its social philosophy if it is to assert and retain the operational independence from political direction that is needed for professional excellence. At the same time, a modern police service needs to be able to achieve success in co-operation with other agencies in order to promote and sustain public safety within the context of a just and tolerant society. As Conor Gearty (Professor of Human Rights Law and Rausing Director of the Centre for the Study of Human Rights, London School of Economics) writes in his preface to this volume: The reader will find in these pages an approach to policing that, though it may originate in critical thinking in Britain and the US, goes far beyond both jurisdictions in its implications and application. Such breadth is especially to be welcomed in this age of increased global co-operation in policing. The police officer wherever he or she might be in the world should wear the badge of virtue as well as of authority, and a great strength of this book is that it explains what this means while also showing that it is possible.
