Abstract

In this chapter, we review these recent developments and their implications for our current understandings of ‘policing’ -- developments that have made very clear that indeed policing has been, and is still being, fundamentally transformed in a wide variety of ways. When we first started to speak of these developments we spoke of a “quiet revolution” (Stenning and Shearing 1980).
