Proposals are being drafted for Police and Crime Commissioners to agree twinning arrangements between forces worldwide. The arrangements will mirror “twin town” pairings adopted by many internationally. It’s hoped that the initiative will further promote cultural and commercial ties, as well as improve understanding and detection of any criminal associations that may exist between the pairings.
The work to date has been undertaken by Prof L Olia of the University of Bunkum in Azkaban (itself already twinned with Cannabis Island), who is seeking views on which pairings would work well. Your suggestions are welcomed!
