Aim & Scope
Policing and Society is concerned with the activity of policing and the factors which affect it. A major part of this material will concern the police -- social scientific investigations of police policy, legal analyses of police powers and their constitutional status, and management oriented research on aspects of police organization -- but space will also be devoted to the relationship between what the police do and the policing decision and functions of community groups, private sector organizations and other state agencies. The journal will concern itself with the political economy of policing. As such it will be of interest to academics from most of the social science disciplines as well as police and other practitioners involved in social regulation and control. Policing and Society provides a genuinely international forum and will have correspondents in most countries where there is a tradition of research and academic inquiry into all aspects of policing. The journal is committed to rigorous policy debate and the highest standards of scholarship.
