Although the fragmentation of police forces throughout this country lends itself to the notion that policing in England and Wales is not under centralised control, recent developments in the structure of our police service indicates a movement towards this end, which will now be discussed. In 1962, the Report of the Royal Commission on the Police4 rejected the concept of a national police force under direct central government control and, in response to its report, the Police Act 1964 was passed, which enshrined the principle legal rules governing the organisation of the police service up until the mid-1990s.
