9780199740598: The Policing Web (Studies in Crime and Public Policy)

Nearly all research devoted to policing focuses on public uniformed police and their legal use of force. An overwhelming amount of this work draws on evidence from Anglo-American police forces. These twin emphases have led to a limited view. Agencies such as criminal investigation units, intelligence services, private security companies, and military policing organizations have almost entirely escaped scholarly attention.

In The Policing Web, Jean-Paul Brodeur looks at policing as a whole. He illuminates its full diversity, showing how it extends far beyond the confines of public police working in uniform and visible to all. Brodeur considers military policing, both when it complements the values of democracy and when it does not. He also discusses criminal individuals acting as police informants, and criminal organizations enforcing their own rules in urban zones deserted by the police. Brodeur argues that the diverse strands of the policing web are united by a common definition that emphasizes the license granted to policing agencies-legally or with impunity- to use means otherwise forbidden to the rest of the population. Employing an international and comparative approach, Brodeur establishes a comprehensive model that links all the components of policing. The policing web, however, is not a neat and well-integrated structure. There is not just one policing web. There are several, depending on the country, police history and culture, and the various public images of policing. These often overlooked factors are essential components of the context of policing.

Wide-ranging and authoritative, The Policing Web expands the very idea of what policing is and how it works, and presents a novel yet fundamental understanding of law enforcement.

About the Author:


Jean-Paul Brodeur is Professor of Criminology and Director of the International Centre for Comparative Criminology at the University of Montreal in Canada.

Review:


"Offers some insightful and provocative ideas. Summing Up: Recommended."--CHOICE


"A tour de force, deeply rooted in history and philosophy. An exciting journey that challenges conventional thinking. Refreshingly personal. Utterly scholarly. A wonderful contribution to our field."--Clifford Shearing, Chair of Criminology and Director of the Centre of Criminology, University of Cape Town


"New vision is rare in police studies; for forty or more years scholars have echoed each other and sought a perspective that sets out the changing nature of policing. Jean-Paul Brodeur has produced such a perspective, a framework that elaborates and specifies Bittner, setting out questions for the twenty-first century. Detailed, comparative, and historical and based on empirical research, this book presents a new vision of policing."--Peter K. Manning, Brooks Chair of Policing and Criminal Justice, Northeastern University


"A superb, theoretically sophisticated analysis of the idea of policing and its development in many cultures. It is richly informed by deep and wide knowledge of the research and historical literature, as well as wider debates in philosophy and social theory. Erudite, provocative, insightful, and stimulating, it offers a magisterial overview of the field."--Robert Reiner, Professor of Criminology, London School of Economics and Political Science

Descripción Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2010. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this comprehensive study, Jean-Paul Brodeur examines the diversity of the policing web. Policing agencies such as criminal investigation units, intelligence services, private security companies, and military policing organizations, are examined in addition to public uniformed police, to show the extent to which policing extends far beyond the confines of public police working in uniform and visible to all. The study also includes a consideration of military policing both when compatible with the values of democracy and when in opposition. It also examines criminal organizations enforcing their own rules in urban zones deserted by the police and criminal individuals acting as police informants since they too are part of the policing web, even though they do not qualify as legitimate policing agents or agencies. The underlying argument of The Policing Web is that the diverse strands of the policing web are united by a common definition that emphasizes the licence granted to policing agencies to use, either legally or with complete impunity, means that are otherwise prohibited as crimes to the rest of the population.This claim is argued for throughout the book and its paradoxical consequences investigated. Although much effort is devoted to presenting a comprehensive model linking all the components of policing, it is acknowledged that the policing web is by no means a neat and well-integrated structure. Even the belief that it will develop into a tightly coordinated system is in itself questionable. Indeed, the study shows that there is not just one policing web, but several, depending on the country, police history and culture, and the images of policing which shape the mind of the community. These often overlooked factors are nonetheless essential components of the context of policing and are discussed within an international framework. Nº de ref. de la librería AOP9780199740598
