About this book

Introduction

The post-9/11 era, with its emphasis on preparedness against terrorist attacks, has seen an ongoing conflict of priorities between law enforcement agencies and the civilian sector: public safety versus individual rights. Community-oriented policing—mobilizing community support in partnership with local law enforcement—has been developed internationally to address this issue, and Terrorism within Comparative International Context assesses the progress and shortcomings of community-based programs. Written by leading experts in police science and based on extensive interviews and focus groups with law enforcement, media, and community representatives, the book offers:

  • A comparative database on terror control strategies in, among others, Ireland, Turkey, Sweden, Spain, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands
  • Analysis of the interaction between the community and local law enforcement in response to terrorist activities.
  • Insights into the relationships between home-grown terrorists, the preventive role of the community, and the proactive role of local law enforcement.
  • A "Best Practices" section including recommendations for investigation and interrogation techniques.
  • A real-world template for training law enforcement personnel.

Terrorism within Comparative International Context is critical reading for researchers, students and professionals across a range of interrelated fields, including criminal justice, terrorism/counterterrorism, organized crime, police science, and public administration, and makes an up-to-date textbook for courses in these areas.
