Recent years have seen a significant level of concern and confusion about the role of the police, in public opinion as well as in official documents; and our current policing system faces great and increasing pressure for change. It was in this context that an Independent Committee of Inquiry into the Role and Responsibilities of the Police was established by the Police Foundation and PSI in 1993: its purpose: to examine the pressures on the police and make recommendations for change. Themes in Contemporary Policing, which was originally commissioned for consideration by the Committee, pulls together key contributions to the debate written by the leading academics in the field. Covering such diverse aspects as crime trends, the changing social context of crime and policing, public opinion and the police, public and private policing, this book will be of major interest to all those concerned about the future of policing.
