Abstract

This briefing paper discusses the new and innovative role of the police Early Intervention Officer or ˜Early Intervention Worker. This specialist role is the latest in the portfolio of police staff specialisms in Scotland. In this paper the author examines whether the new role has potential to add value to the policing process and also discusses ways in which the role could be developed further. The paper discusses how the new role fits into the community policing portfolio alongside other specialisms, many of which are under threat in the current economic climate.
