In varying respects all the following perspectives must be considered in relation to this topic, because different types of crime make different demands and have different consequences and implications for police organisation, and police officers and staff. How the police manage and respond to different types of crime will have different implications for the wider community, and for the handling of victims, suspects, witnesses and third parties. The need to engage with other agencies will vary by crime type, and although the overall impact of crime and crime statistics is a political issue, individual crime types also have their own political significance.
