Experiences of Police and Sentencing Outcomes

  • Angie Heal


Having depicted the trajectories of the respondents in this research from childhood in Jamaica to becoming involved in the supply of drugs in the UK, this penultimate chapter examines their experiences in relation to the police and the sentences they received via the UK criminal courts. This incorporates data in relation to the Jamaica Constabulary Force and UK police forces, which operate on opposite sides of the globe, in very different circumstances and with very different resources. It also considers the role of informants in respondents’ trajectories and the corresponding issue of trust, as well as issues raised in relation to police corruption.
