Abstract

We celebrate this, the 10th Anniversary of Police Research and Practice, with a Special Issue that does what this remarkable journal has been doing since its inception. Accord- ingly, we bring together commentaries that reflect upon the state of police (and policing) across the globe and upon associated forms of policing scholarship.

Given constraints of space we are only able to take a selective – albeit a discriminating – peek at the present range of policing scholarship and practice. In doing so, we offer contributions from Africa, Australia, South and Central America, China, Europe, and the USA. It is an honor for us, as guest editors, to bring together these thoughtful contributions as a way of celebrating this special anniversary and, of course, the vital work that its editors and Editorial Board have done over the past decade.
