How does society hold its police to account? It’s a vital part of upholding law and liberty but changing modes of policing delivery and new technologies call for fresh thinking about the way we guard our guards.

This much-needed new book from leading criminology professor Michael Rowe, part of the ‘Key Themes in Policing’ series, explores issues of governance, discipline and transparency. The landmark new study:

• Showcases how social change and rising inequalities make it more difficult to ensure meaningful accountability;

• Addresses the impact of Evidence-Based Policing strategies on the direction and control of officers;

• Sets out a game-changing agenda for ensuring democratic and answerable policing.

For policing students and practitioners, it’s an essential guide to modern-day accountability.
