The demise of proper policing started back in the late 1970s with the ‘Fast Track Graduate Entry Scheme’. Prior to this all officers started on the beat and rose through the ranks on merit (well most of them).
With graduate entry you had those entering the police force with their degrees in criminology and sociology etc and were products of the cultural Marxist educational establishments who thought that the way things were was old-fashioned and needed to be modernised.

This also meant that those going up through the ranks were not seasoned ‘coppers’ who had experienced the real problems in society first-hand but ‘graduates’ with their ‘woolly thinking and modern methods’. Sadly the full outcome of this programme can be seen with the likes of Dick at the top of the Met and most of the senior officers of a similar disposition.
