  • AC1.3- Police prioritisation
    • definition: if the media, home office, public deem a crime to be serious and need dealing with the police will prioritise it due to their limited resources
    • example: bomb threats and murder, and arson will be more important then graffiti or petty theft etc
    • stats: 2021 £130.5 million to tackle serious violence, murder and knife crime compared to £4,821m for finding a shoplifter
    • positive consequence: police aren't wasting money and resources and they are able to deal with serious dangerous crimes
    • negative consequence people more likely to commit minor crimes as they know the heat isnt on them as much
