This book is a concise introductory exploration of policing in contemporary Australia. It looks at policing within specific modern Australian institutions, while reflecting on the development of civil policing in all its forms, and across many states and privates settings. Policing is viewed in the wider sense of regulatory and power relations as demonstrated through the essential and often problematic relationships between police and diverse communities.
