Abstract

Community policing, problem-oriented policing and intelligence-led policing are all critical of and aim to replace the dominant, ‘fire brigade’ or ‘reactive’ methods of policing. 1 In the latter the police, as an emergency service, respond case-by-case to issues as they arise, and deal with them then and there. They then withdraw to await the next incident that requires attention. There is nothing strategic about response policing. There are no long-term objectives. There is no purpose beyond coping with the here and now. Community policing, problem-oriented policing and intelligence-led policing are all concerned with reforming policing in ways that will give it greater direction. They provide alternative models.
