About this item

The Dutch policing landscape has changed considerably over the past three decades; various new uniformed officers now share patrolling responsibilities with the traditional police. This book is about one of the most prominent groups of new surveillance professionals in the Netherlands: municipal officers. It discusses how this profession has evolved, how municipal officers act in public places, and how they see their work. Through a rich, yet compact analysis this study shows that this new occupational group can be understood as the result of special (political) attention to citizens' annoyances, concerns, and fears. The book also demonstrates that the work of these officers is a particular Dutch phenomenon, partly defying the ideas of disorder policing developed elsewhere. This study will speak to anyone interested in plural policing. Also readers with an interest in policies on urban disorder will find this book topical, as will those with a concern for how local governments respond to citizens' worries.
