Bobbies on the net: a police workforce for the digital age

The report finds that a range of changes are required to make forces fit to fight digital crime. Different parts of the workforce will need to change in different ways (see Figure 1). Nevertheless, the whole workforce requires better equipment, a better understanding of digital demand and crime-fighting techniques, and new (less-hierarchical) working patterns. Police forces should make better use of secondments, and introduce on-demand cyber-volunteer units to help fight the most sophisticated crime, such as cyber-attacks.
