Product description


Jones and Newburn's study of private security and public policing provides an appropriate and entirely convincing evaluation of the incresingly diverse provision of policing arrangements in England and Wales. (Barry Loveday, Local Government Studies Vol 25 No 1 Spring 1999)

This book is probably the most significant research that has yet been published on private security in the UK. (Mark Button, Labour Campaign for Criminal Justice Newsletter 49)

Private Security and Public Policing provides a solid basis for the understanding of private secutrity within the context of policing. (Mark Button, Labour Campaign for Criminal Justice Newsletter 49)

important contribution to the sociology of policing ... Jones and Newburn provide what is probably the most reliable account to date of the size, scope and activities of the private security firm industry in Britain ... an important book ... notable both for the grounded and much needed account it offers of the extent and dynamics of plural policing in contemporary Britain, and for drawing some key conceptual distinctions. (Ian Loader, British Journal of Criminology (2000) 40)

From a criminological perspective, Jones and Newburn, drawing on their major empirical study, make a significant contribution to the emerging body of literature concerned with the role of private security./ For those academics and practitioners who seek to grapple with these issues in the future this well argued and well written text makes a vital contribution./ Lesley Noaks, Cardiff University, Journal of Law and Society, Vol 26, no2, June 1999
