Municipal Policing in Scotland

Daniel Donnelly


This book is based on current research and policing experience and asks what municipal policing means in modern-day Scotland. It examines the role of community policing, civilianisation in the police, private-sector involvement, surveillance and CCTV, the role of the Scottish Government and police authorities, police governance and accountability. Up-to-date research on community wardens and the part they play in community safety is also commented upon. In conclusion, the author gives his views on the future of the contemporary model of municipal policing and whether a national police service in Scotland is an inevitability in the future.
