THE ARMED FORCES

The result is to reserve the higher posts in the force to men from the upper middle class. Training at the college appears to be modelled on an army and public-school tradition. It is clear that this post-appointment training which lasts two years offers an opportunity for improving standards in the Metropolitan Police. Already there is also, through the acceptance of trainees from the Empire, a tendency towards developing it into an Imperial Police College of possible real value. It might become a means of improving and unifying provincial standards by preparing in addition for high office in the provinces. But clearly this must depend upon the kind of education given, and this shows signs of being too exclusively military, legal, and athletic. There should be education in citizenship, public administration, social and economic history, and since it is of university standard and for Civil Service work the direction ought at least to be influenced by the universities and the Civil Service Commission.
Since this change closes the avenues to promotion by other methods than that which it establishes, a new recruitment of the lower ranks on short-service lines has had to be instituted. The ten-years' recruit, whom it seems to be aimed at drawing from the army, is likely to be a less ambitious member of the force, to show less initiative than the previous type of constable, and to be more imbued with military conceptions of his duties. It is said that there is already a deterioration of type, and there is definitely a greater difficulty in securing recruits. Such a segregation of classes of officer in the metropolitan force, and such a grading division-which is emphasized by the edict that police college trainees may not subsequently join the Police Federation-introduces a dangerous disunity into the ranks.
At the same time there has been growing up a tendency

for the appointment as provincial Chief Constables of retired army officers. It cannot be doubted that the effect of these changes is to make the force a more reliable defender of the actual order of society, and probably a slightly less reliable instrument in the hands of a left-wing government. It is difficult to find any reason in the shape of previous inefficiency for these changes, and therefore it must be assumed that their effect is not dissociated from the motive behind them.
