How Policing Has Changed (18)

Our little book ‘It’s A Blag: The ‘dark art’ of Police humour’ contains over 100 small stories about the tricks police officers played on each other. The ‘mock’ crime report pictured relates to an occasion when Mike cancelled the CID Christmas function due to work commitments and was reported for ‘theft of Christmas’. Years ago crime reports were completed by hand by the reporting officers and details were eventually inputted onto computer. Nowadays in the digital age a lot of crime reports are inputted directly onto computers using hand-held devices. Technology undoubtedly saves time but has it removed some of the ‘human engagement’ that officers were involved in as they owned their individual reports.
