About this book


This book provides a view into the multi-dimensional and multi-contextual nature of community policing. It brings together important conceptual discussions as well as numerous case studies and real-life examples of European community policing practices. It further offers insights into how the (primarily locally focused) concept of community policing fits into an increasingly interconnected world. Our book is intended for professionals working in community policing, academics and policymakers developing community policing procedures. In addition, the book aims to provide information for readers who are new to the subject of community policing. The wide range of examples and case studies make it also an excellent resource for teaching materials.
