The structures and strategies of policing are analysed and the relationships between the police, other governmental institutions and the general public are discussed. Contemporary issues concerning police accountability, police culture, police deviance, oversight authorities, the managerial approach to policing, the marketisation of policing, community policing and transnational crime are examined. Case material from Australia, Britain, the United States and other largely western countries is drawn on to illustrate policy issues.
