CRIM 3111: Policing and Communities (2023-2024)

View all CRIM classes

This course examines the police as a profession, from both a historical and contemporary context. We will think about the police as a social institution, exploring the structure of police systems and the culture of policing, and how it is shaped by broader socio-cultural contexts. We will explore the major strategies of policing (e.g., community policing, “broken-windows”, Crisis Intervention Teams, etc.) and the implications for the communities they serve (e.g., minority communities). In the course, we will study issues in contemporary policing and consider police reforms, with a focus on policing in an urban environment Typically offered: Autumn.
