Full description for Arming the British Police
As the fear of violent crime escalates, many inhabitants of the British Isles are calling for the police to carry guns. Others, however, remain strongly opposed to the concept of the police being regularly armed when on duty. In particular, they believe that this country could follow the American example, with a horrifying increase in shootings. Arming the British Police examines the history of violent crime and violence against the representatives of law and order, and looks at the extent to which the 'unarmed' British police have had recourse to firearms in the past, with some surprising findings. This book gives assistance to those responsible for deciding the answer to this controversial issue.
