The Police Service in the UK has experienced similar financial pressures to other public services, at the same time as patterns of demand have changed considerable. Perceptions of demand and capacity imbalance have led to calls for more comprehensive assessment of demand and capacity within policing. All forces have to address ways of reducing demand, and a number of studies on demand management are underway with activity across a range of forces.
This project contributes to this evidence base by investigating how forces are addressing the apparent mismatch between demand and capacity through changes to policy and practice.
