Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter discusses policies for crime and policing in rural areas in Great Britain under the Labour government. It examines some of the contexts behind changes to Labour's policing policies and evaluates rural policing under New Labour. The chapter identifies three main phases of policy development that have had different implications for the policing of rural communities. These include a period of continuation of existing trends up to 2000, a renewed focus on rural policing problems from 2000, and a shift in emphasis from rurality to locality after 2006.
