Leading Policing in Europe

Police officers have a bleak vision of the future world and of Europe. They anticipate the breakdown of law and order, with violent public order problems and tensions within social groups, particularly those which have immigrant status or ethnic/religious identity. This is likely to be largely an urban problem where polarisation between ‘insider’ and ‘outsider’ will lead to confrontation. The gendarmeries of Europe are positioning themselves in anticipation of such events. Others point to the need for police forces to become more active against on-line crime and for the recruitment of officers who have expertise in IT software and system engineering. A more general option was ‘to recruit to purpose’, thus acquiring expertise in matters like money-laundering and fraud, as well as in cyberspace.
