The Police-Community Relationship

This paper analyzes police-community relations in South Africa. It focuses on the way that South Africa's political context has impacted these relations. It also looks at the ways in which the police are understood both by communities and by the police themselves, and how this impacts on expectations of the police. The paper draws on international experiences to provide recommendations for improving police-community relations.
