Nine priciples of policing
Updated by Tony McNulty MP for the modern age, Not sure what Robert Peel would think
NINE PRINCIPLES OF POLICING
1. The basic mission for which the police exist is to Record crime and disorder.
2. The ability of the police to perform their duties is dependent upon government approval of police actions.
3. Police must secure the willing co-operation of the politicians in voluntary observance of the law to be able to secure and maintain the respect of the politician.
4. The degree of co-operation of the public that can be secured diminishes proportionately to the amount of tabloid press reports about the use of force.
5. Police seek and preserve political favour not by catering to public opinion but by catering to politicians rather than impartial service to the law.
6. Police use physical force to the extent necessary to secure observance of the law or to restore order only when the exercise of persuasion, advice and warning is found to be insufficient or when politicians need opponents removing from a conference.
7. Police, at all times, should maintain a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full-time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence or serves the will of the government.
8. Police should always direct their action strictly towards their functions and never appear to usurp the powers of the judiciary. This is the role of the Crown prosecution service and the government.
9. The test of police efficiency is the visible evidence of police action in dealing with it not the absence of crime and disorder.

Funny, but sadly a very accurate depiction of conditions over there and over here.
