Police and security services are just one part of government. In the US, we're in an "encrypt all of the things" phase in most places regulated by the Feds. NIST stuff is pretty good, and is the basis for most of the mainstream security standards.

The government plays a weird dual role. NIST gives good advice, but you need to understand what you're doing. Part of that is data classification and risk assessment, which is always art and science.

When they get real explicit about guidance, that means the thing is broken.
