The police procedural retains the basic conventional elements of the detective genre-plot and motifs, character, setting, theme, and props, but it twists these elements and turn them into inventions to keep the interest of the readers and viewers. Having established itself as a subgenre, the police procedural grows to become formulaic by creating its own conventions. It is a formula that is generally employed by writers and has come to be expected by readers or viewers. By doing so, the police procedural has helped the detective genre as its parents genre stay popular. Though there has been numberless writers of these stories, there has never been a book of criticism before. University of Wisconsin Press.
