Shifts in policing, police professionalism and police organisation

  • Peter Neyroud

Abstract

Based on the upheaval in the contemporary policing landscape, the author is portraying the shifts in policing, police professionalism and police organisation. The policing community is coming to terms with the changing criminal landscape. The reality of e-crime, for example, is that it does not take on a single form, but comprises a multitude of different schemes. After describing how things are changing the author comes to the conclusion that ‘great challenges now face policing, but the uncertainty of the contemporary landscape also promises a real opportunity for police leaders to shape a profession that can withstand the demands of tomorrow’. This conclusions can be taken as a solid and well-informed basis for further future research projects. From a forward-looking vantage point, they can serve as a constructive starting point for reconsidering and challenging the existing national police training systems - in particular for police managers, including the implementation of the Bologna Process - as well as international cooperation in the field of police training.
