Description

Publication Date: 05 February 2014
This book investigates the practices of 'soft' policing through the perspective of different control agencies including the police, social work teams and the youth justice service, and their collaborative response towards young people involved in low-level anti-social behaviour.

Examining early intervention initiatives, McCarthy analyses the decision-making practices, group-level deliberation, practical struggles and experiences of multi-agency working, highlighting the key role of the police in these partnerships. This book shows that whilst attempts to intervene early may be largely conditioned by a benevolent spirit akin to social work, complexities in collaborative responses can arise when initiatives do not always reflect the intended aims, and can at times lead to deeper and more intensive control under the guise of support.

'Soft' Policing will appeal to a range of scholars in criminology and policing, as well as practitioners including youth justice professionals, police officers, social workers and those involved in the provision of
services for children and young people.
