The Police of the United Kingdom kill far less people that the US Police.

Corruption

A 2011 report by Transparency International concluded that although corruption is not endemic, police corruption in UK is a much greater problem than recognised and that there was an inadequate response to its growing threat.[1]

Priorities

in 2015, Sara Thornton, the head of the new National Police Chiefs' Council stated that while burglary was an important crime for police, police man not visit burglaries in future. Pointing to financial cuts, she added "think of the threat to our children from sexual offences, from sexual abuse, from online abuse, that's what we've got to prioritise."[2]

Drones

In 2017, the first UK police force announced plans for a "24-hour police drone unit".[3]
