This chapter observes that the traditional law enforcement role of the police is in the process of being overtaken by initiatives based on a combination of intelligence-led policing and a commitment to the implementation of effective crime reduction programmes based on sharing information and intelligence throughout England and Wales. It notes that currently, all police forces are now required to introduce and use the National Intelligence Model (NIM) as identified within the 2002 Police Reform Act. It notes that the NIM requires the collection and more effective use of local (and other) sources of information that together form the basis of the work of police intelligence analysts. It explains that this, along with the analysis of offender patterns at various geographical levels on a regular basis, now provides a much more comprehensive picture of crime patterns and quality of life problems to which the police can respond.
