Where Are All The Police? – An Analysis of Police Resources


From all of the evidence we have examined, we have arrived at some key reforms that we believe must be addressed if the service is to effect constructive organizational reforms. Changes that will withstand the test of time must start at the very top of British policing and cascade down through root and branch of the service in s clear and simplified set of revised objectives, strategies and tactics.


Objectives are the goals to achieve in order to fulfill long-term and short-term vision. By laying out objectives each force creates the “what” milestones needed in order to meet the vision. For example, if the vision is to “deliver value for money effective common sense policing that delivers real cuts in crime rates”, then one of the overall goals could be to eliminate any systems and processes that hinder or obstruct reaching that objective.


Strategies are the plans of action taken to achieve the objective. There are many different strategies to achieve any given goal. It’s important to identify ALL the possible strategies so that managers can select the most effective method for achieving the objective. For example, if the objective is to “deliver value for money effective common sense policing that delivers real cuts in crime rates”, then one strategy that might be used to achieve that goal is to develop a minimum frontline policing resource level. Another strategy can be to focus on eliminating or minimizing bureaucracy, or creating a minimalist but transparent crime recording process. Better to stare the stark reality of crime levels and detections in the face so that solutions can be sought than to perpetuate the deceit of manipulating figures for short term gain. Time should be spent brainstorming all the possible strategies (even the ones that sound crazy), then pick the ones that makes the most sense for your objectives.


Tactics are the specific activities that carry out the strategy you have selected. Managers often mistake tactics with strategy. Again, there are many different tactics you can take to carry out a strategy. For example, if a Chief Constable wants to increase on the street officer visibility to 50% of warranted officers, he could start by conducting a vigorous and stringent evaluation of the non response or visibility type roles to determine if some of the latter roles could not be performed by spreading the responsibility among the increased level of frontline officers. This may require additional training to achieve multi skilled officers, but again, better this than putting frontline officers and the general public at risk by under resourcing at critically peak times. Those are just a few of the tactics you can take to attract new clients to your business. You can select more than one tactic to carry out a strategy… it all depends on your industry, budget, resources and time.
