The changing nature of crime is placing new demands on police forces
The basic mission and attitude towards policing hasn’t changed since the publication of Sir Robert Peel’s Principles of Law Enforcement in 1829. However, the environment in which the police operate has changed considerably.
Protecting people and property, maintaining the peace, detecting crime and bringing offenders to justice remain the core functions of policing. However, the changing nature of crime is placing new demands on police services to respond to ever-evolving threats whilst driving efficiencies.
Digital transformation will support and enhance the way police forces operate and help them to better achieve their mission. Digital solutions will relieve the pressure on police time, make better use of data, integrate services, combat the growing problem of cyber security and ultimately release officers to deal with situations that need a greater human input.
Digital policing is developing within the context of rising citizen expectations, increased scrutiny and public need for in-person contact with police officers. No matter how high tech police work becomes, there is no replacement for human intelligence, professional instinct and empathy.
