Gender Issues in Inter-Agency Relations: Police, Probation and Social Services
This paper is based on a two-year research project entitled ‘Crime, Community and the Inter-Agency Dimension’ and funded by the Economic and Social Research Council. The key agencies chosen for our research were the police, social services and the probation service. Our overall objective was to study patterns of agency cooperation within the criminal justice system and to identify important areas of policy tension and potential conflict between these state agencies (cf. Blagg et al., 1988; Sampson et al., 1988; Pearson et al., 1989).
