Two of our most senior researchers, Professor Nicole L Asquith and Dr Isabelle Bartkowiak-Théron, internationally recognised scholars on vulnerability and policing in the criminal justice system, published their third book, Policing Practices and Vulnerable People. In their first co-authored book, they are joined by pracademics and practitioners to give us a view from the frontline.
This book addresses existing gaps in police research, education, and training, and provides guidance on how to respond to and address the vulnerability that arises in policing practice. It guides students through the conceptual and practical issues of managing vulnerability in policing with case studies and practitioners’ views from the UK, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, the US, Canada, France, and beyond to the Maldives, China, India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.
Each chapter includes key concepts, case studies, views from the frontline, further reading and activities. Policing Practices and Vulnerable People is aimed at researchers and practitioners working with police. While focused on democratic policing practices, this book includes case studies and practitioners’ views from a wide range of approaches, including those from the Global South. This book provides readers with a framework that can assist them in converting conceptual knowledge to critical, ethical policing practice.
The book has been published by Palgrave Macmillan, and is available from https://www.palgrave.com/gp/book/9783030628697
