Police, Drugs and Community

Collison, Mike


IBSN: 1853433195 Categories: ,


Drawing on rich ethnographic data gathered by observing a force level drug squad at work, Mike Collison’s book deals with the strategic, cultural and political effects of contemporary drug policing and sets them against a broader canvas. Collison argues that current approaches to drug law enforcement endemically produce and reproduce failure, meanwhile realising undesirable forms of policing in a democratic society.
