Abstract

Presents a Swedish police chief’s analysis of the operational command concept, defining different tactical situations and ways to improve command functions.

Some situations are static, others are dynamic. Stresses the need to maintain professional competence and be mentally prepared for the odd, difficult or different. Argues that information is power, therefore good intelligence gathering and information mediation are important in all police operations.
