"Police and Government Relations: Who's Calling the Shots? examines the broad question of control of the police and our understanding of both the independence and accountability of the police for their actions." "In this collection of essays Margaret E. Beare and Tonita Murray have brought together scholars from law, political science, and criminology to illustrate the diversity of opinion that exists on the topic. While providing theoretical models and concrete examples, the chapters utilize multidisciplinary, comparative, and case-study methodologies to explore how the operating tension between police independence and democratic governance and accountability has played out in Canada and abroad. Together the essays offer a framework for continuing discussion and suggest criteria, options, and tools for both legislators and police for future discussion and implementation."--Jacket.
