3. Policing: context and practicelocked

  • Graham Ellison


This chapter examines practice or ‘doing’ of state policing, and why and how certain police policies and practices impact disproportionately on particular social groups. It also considers ‘policing’ as something beyond what the state police do to examine the role of the private/corporate sector in the provision of policing and security.
