Summary

The last three decades have seen a wealth of research and writing in the area of police culture. Despite such attention, the subject area often appears both confused and confusing with much literature failing to reflect current debates that conceive of police cultures as multi-facetted and ever-evolving. This book brings together knowledge, debates and themes of police culture in one highly accessible resource to provide an overview of the key literature of the area. It begins by asking the question 'What is police culture?', from this foundation, it critically explores the relationship between police culture, behaviour and those occupational and organizational forces which inform it. Police Cultureswill be essential reading for students of criminology, criminal justice and policing as well as police practitioners.
