Liability of police in negligence: a comparative analysis

Gray, Anthony (2016) Liability of police in negligence: a comparative analysis. Tort Law Review, 24 (1). pp. 34-62. ISSN 1039-3285

Abstract

This article considers the question of the extent to which police are, and should, be held liable in negligence for breach of a duty of care, in light of a recent United Kingdom Supreme Court decision which demonstrates continued reluctance to find that a public authority owes a duty of care to members of the public.
