The police and the community in the 1990s


The proceedings look at the definition and concept of community policing, and how it operates in the various states of Australia, particularly Queensland in the post Fitzgerald era. The papers also discuss overseas models of community policing, as well as issues such as implementation problems, the impact of multiculturalism, and evaluation.
