The purpose of this paper is to articulate a set of interlinked research propositions about knowledge management systems in relation to police investigations and in particular the possibilities of capturing the investigative knowledge inherent in how experienced police understand the investigative process. Moreover, the paper adresses missing links in the litterature between "know-what" and "know-how" relationships between knowledge management systems and police investigations. A series of policy recommendations are also outlined in relation to this research agenda.
