Taking Care of Business

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the rise of intelligence-led policing and its impact on proactive detective work and the initiation of drug law enforcement operations. Particular attention is paid to the establishment of the National Intelligence Model (NIM) in England and Wales. For the most part, it offers an in-depth analysis of the interactive relationship between the drug detectives and the organizational frameworks within which their formative intelligence and investigative practices were constructed and performed. Matters of substance include how the NIM has been received and the policy of ‘compliance’; the significance of drug strategies, official priorities, and performance management; what constituted ‘intelligence’, how it entered the police intelligence system, and the routine activities of intelligence work; and the setting of operational targets.

Keywords:   criminal investigation, detectives, drug strategies, intelligence-led policing, managerialism, National Intelligence Model, NIM, police culture, police reform, proactive policing
