The paper explores ways of integrating state and civil society resources to govern security. The governance of public policing is being reconfigured under the twin influences of practical exigencies and shifts in the way in which governance is being understood. Existing frameworks for resource acquisition and allocation are explored. The paper discusses both the steering and the rowing of multilateral policing by looking at how these resourcing networks are constituted and managed. It considers how the variety of (often contesting) interests engage with each other, the consequences this is having for democratic governance and how the key values of democratic policing might be enhanced.
