This chapter looks critically at the use of police and prosecution powers in the criminal justice system of England and Wales. It also examines how the system deals with injustice, police malpractice in particular. It argues that present practices reflect processes of 'inclusion' for white-collar criminals, and of 'exclusion' for the poor, disadvantaged and powerless.
