Some thoughts on policing

One “but” regarding my final remark. We need their input, but we should take great care to sever connections with the existing structures and cultures.

We should create specialized units – as I have argued before – and do away with the one-stop shop setup we have now, with most cops considering themselves or needing to be experts at literally everything (cyber crime, mental health, people’s trustworthiness, business reliability, stalking, money-laundering, relationships, housing, drug use) while in practice they often know very little about these areas.
