In this personal view of a decade of the Crime and Disorder Act (1998), Daniel Gilling argues that New Labour are to be congratulated for bringing about a radical reform in the landscape of local crime control. However, he is also critical of central government's high level of control over CDRP and local police business. His solution is a partnership approach built on stronger local accountability delivered through neighbourhood management structures and facilitated by CDRPs, with central government ‘speaking in a much quieter voice’.
