[Author's original abstract]

Since the late 1970s successive UK governments, have attempted to implement reforms across the English and Welsh police services. Paradoxically although public attitudes towards the police are generally positive it is evident that the social context of policing is changing. The challenge for the police therefore is to introduce innovative ways of improving efficiency and productivity, whilst at the same time improving public opinion as to their effectiveness in their ‘fight against crime.’ This will require significant reform, which will have a major impact on police organisations in England and Wales, calling into question their values and future role.
