Introducing Policing: Challanges for Police and Australian Communities is a concise introductory text on policing in Australia.

The text looks at policing within the specific modern Australian institutions, while reflecting on the development of civil policing in all its forms. Policing is viewed in the wider sense of regulatory and power relations as demonstrated through the essential and often problematic relationship between police and diverse communities.

The book is introductory in the sense that it offers the reader a birds-eye view of the essential features of policing. The chapters locate broad policing themes within provocative contexts and the wider issues of policing are given contemporary focus by being placed in particular social, commercial, political, and experiential frames. Readers are encouraged to challenge commonly held assumptions of policing, while recognising the interests and influences behind recent developments in policing.

Introducing Policing: Challanges for Police and Australian Communities is essential text for students of police studies, criminal justice, criminology, law, and for those involved in police training and police professional development programmes. It is an excellent resource for private and public sector police in all jurisdictions, criminal lawyers, judges and lawyers, welfare and youth workers, ombudsman and regulators.
