CRI335H1: Policing


A theoretical framework is developed to examine the nature of policing, its structure and function. Attention is given to the history of policing as a global form of social practice. We examine the perspectives of both “the police” and “the policed”, as well as the objectives, domains, strategies, and authority of contemporary policing, including decision-making, organizational culture, and accountability.
