    Abstract

    Krulak argues in the ‘Three Block War’, localised decisions and actions can impact upon larger operational planning in front of a worldwide audience, creating political and strategic implications for the centre. This led to the introduction of the ‘strategic corporal’ (emphasis added), where all staff as independent decision-makers will be held to account as they make judgement calls based upon localised sound reasoning, using ethical values, whilst delivering strategic expectations. This study critically evaluates the existing national police decision making model advocated by the College of Policing as a post event justification model of action, within the context of localised police decision making, categorising the current mnemonic CIAPOAR as problematic. The study submits the potential for the SC concept with a pragmatic ethical model, BE PLANE, founded in the Police Code of Ethics, supported by the current Police Vision Mission and Values statement, with the capacity to be supportive of a range of fast and slow burn scenarios, within the context of decision making aligned to Kahneman understanding of slow and fast thinking.
