Policing the Risk Society, Hardback (August 1997)» View all books by Richard V. Ericson
This book contends that the police have become information brokers to institutions such as insurance companies and health and welfare organisations that operate based on knowledge of risk. In turn, these institutions influence the ways that police officers think and act. The authors examine different aspects of police involvement.
