I’m pleased to announce the publication of a new double issue of Surveillance & Society on “Visibilities and New Models of Policing.” This special issue, guest edited by Keith Spiller and Xavier L'Hoiry, investigates the blurring of boundaries between police and publics, particularly with respect to citizen-based policing schemes. In addition to an editorial introduction and nine curated articles, the issue includes nine regular articles and a number of book reviews.

Please see below and spread the word!
