Laura Norder | 29.12.2011 19:14 | August Riots | Policing

A Home Office consultation on police powers in public order situations was launched in October. It closes on 13th January 2012.

"This three-part consultation seeks your views on the areas of police powers which the government is committed to reviewing:
- the relevance of the word 'insulting' in section 5 of the Public Order Act 1986
- new powers to request removal of face coverings
- new powers to impose curfew to prevent and control outbreaks of disorder

You can email the Home Office with your comments -
