About this object

Kenneth Oxford was the Chief Constable of Merseyside Police from 1976-89. Oxford had been warned for several years, by members of the Liverpool Police Committee, about the situation in some of the poorest areas of the city. After the rioting in Liverpool 8, during the summer of 1981, his response to the riot was to blame it on “Black Hooligans”.
