Accountability needs to be brought in for the UK Police forces. Chief Constables should be publicly elected as they are in the USA.

If Chief Constables are not doing their job, there should be a way of removing them.

Why is this idea important?

Patently the police service is no longer accountable to the population of Britain. This needs to change, and change quickly, to restore public confidence in the police.

The only way to ensure this is to make the leaders of the various police forces directly electable.
