Abstract:     
This is an invited position paper for the Stevens' Independent Commission on the Future of Policing in England & Wales. At a time when many people are considering the future of policing, any consideration of policy and practice needs to consider the legitimacy of the police in the eyes of the policed, and through this the influence that police and other legal authorities can exert on the law-related behaviour of citizens. In this position paper we apply Tom Tyler's procedural justice model of policing to the specific context of England & Wales, focusing in particular on stop-and-search, order maintenance, and what constitutes success in policing.
