Petition 43 territorial police forces in England & Wales operating innefficiently

With 43 discrete police forces operating in England & Wales, how can day-to--day administration, law enforcement, crime investigation (and resolution) be consistent, effective, efficient (successful) and value for money? We ask Parliament to take a new look at and debate fully this absurd situation (many of these 43 forces are a law unto themselves - using inconsistent, archaic and outdated practices and procedures), consulting the appropriate bodies of expertise and experience where necessary - and making recommendations to The Executive, so that we can have a much more effective policing system operating in England & Wales.
