While these changes have occurred across most of policing, given the predominance of the detective in early policing, it is surprising that investigations is one area that has remained resistant to change, leading the authors of a major review of the investigative function to conclude: In many fundamental respects, the investigation process, though showing some advances, seems to have been relatively uninfluenced by significant changes in policing, the crime problem and technological advances made in the past thirty years.
These pressures and how they have driven a move towards intelligence-led policing are examined below. Complexity in policing and the performance culture The law enforcement world has grown increasingly complex, and this has been a driver for a better level of organisation of knowledge within policing. Increasing ability to use information to inform or evaluate decisions has driven a greater managerialism culture, a culture that has increased the bureaucratic load.
