Since the terror attack of September 11, 2001, counterterrorism has become a major responsibility for police agencies in the Western world. This relatively new and unique task raises new problems and questions for democratic police agencies, yet most of what we know to date about the implications of policing terrorism, in terms of both crime-control and police-community relationships, is based on theoretical hypotheses and reasonable speculations. In this book we bring the first large-scale, multi-method study we are aware of, in which the effects of policing terrorism on police performance in “classic” areas of responsibility and on the relationship between the police and the public have been examined empirically. Our analyses focus specifically on Israel, because it is a setting that provides a unique opportunity to carry out such an examination. In this introductory chapter we discuss the importance of empirically assessing the implications of policing terrorism and the potential consequences of policing terrorism as understood to date. We also review the Israeli context for studying the outcomes of policing terrorism; the Israel National Police (INP), its history, structure, and model for policing terrorism; and our research questions and structure of the book.
