The level of recorded crime in England and Wales rose by 74% in the decade to 1992, whilst the proportion of crimes detected by the police declined from 37% to 26%. This does not indicate a deterioration in the effectiveness of the police - in fact, as the number of police officers rose by only 6% during that period, it is clear that the number of crimes handled by each officer has risen dramatically. So how can the police increase the proportion of crimes cleared up? This report suggests that all forces adopt an integrated approach based on the good practices currently in use by some forces. They need to develop integrated strategies which clarify roles and accountabilities, make the best possible use of resources, and target the criminals rather than respond to crime incidents.
