This module will ask students to consider various different models of policing from around the world, e.g. Sweden, Holland, Canada, USA, Interpol, etc. This will involve a comparative engagement with UK policing, though it will ultimately focus on the correlation between models of policing and community satisfaction. What are the governance structures? What role does culture play in delivering performance? What is the relationship between policing and local and national politics? How does each country assess effectiveness? Is policing contextual or does it have core characteristics that can be transnational? Transnational policing will also be explored and its impact on global security. The role of post-conflict policing will also be considered.
