Community Policing by Mike Brogden
Book DescriptionCommunity policing has been a buzzword in Anglo-American policing for the last two decades, somewhat vague in its definition but generally considered to be a good thing. In the UK the notion of community policing conveys a consensual policing style, offering an alternative to past public order and crimefighting styles. In the US community policing represents the dominant ideology of policing as reflected in a myriad of urban schemes and funding practices, the new orthodoxy in North American policing policy-making, strategies and tactic. But it has also become a massive export to non-western societies where it has been adopted in many countries, in the face of scant evidence of its appropriateness in very different contexts and surroundings. * critical analysis of concept of community policing worldwide * assesses evidence for its effectiveness, especially in the USA and UK * highlights often inappropriate export of community policing models to failed and transitional societies.

Books By Author Mike Brogden
Policing in an Age of Austerity, Paperback (July 2011)
While the question of role and function has been the bedrock of classical sociological theorizing on police, this text grounds such theorising in explicating how British policing has arisen through a schismatic process, why it is in a present mess, and what it should be doing in the future.
Geronticide, Paperback (February 2001)
Drawing on a variety of historical, contemporary, anthropological and literary sources, this book considers the present day debates about the sanctity of elderly lives and the question of euthanasia. The book shows that killing the elderly, voluntarily or involuntarily, has been a feature of many societies, from the primitive to the present day.
Crime, Abuse and the Elderly, Paperback (May 2000)
Examines the experiences of older people as both victims and perpetrators of crime. Drawing upon research from British and American sources, the authors detail the historical experience of the elderly as victims, and the extent of modern-day criminal victimization in the home and institutions.
