This article reflects on the findings of two independent studies carried out by the authors into partnership working between the police and other community agencies. Running counter to previous evidence, we find strong support for partnership working amongst police officers both at operational and strategic levels. This article draws out some of the effective ingredients of successful partnership working and the ways it can be best embraced and sustained within the police organization.
