This book explores a major change in crime control whereby responsibility no longer rests primarily with state agencies, but is shared with a wide range of organizations and individuals. As a result, the role of the state becomes increasingly regulatory rather than one that actually controls policing. Including practical issues as well as ethical implications, this volume reveals how third party policing actually works, making it a valuable resource for students, academics and policy makers.Read more
- First comprehensive analysis of third party policing

Reviews & endorsements
'The important contribution of this book is that it defines and outlines the dimensions of strategies for crime prevention and control that fall between formal policing and citizen responsibility as well as provides an evaluation of current and past third party policing efforts. This is important because it enables researchers and practitioners not only to have a common language by which to refer to this activity, but also specific guidance for practice.'
