Depolicing-the withdrawal from proactive law enforcement by officers on the line-has become an increasing concern within both
police departments and the communities that they serve. The author, a former policeman himself, draws on extensive interviews
with officers in a variety of jurisdictions to explore how prevalent depolicing has become, why officers engage in it, and
what can be done to minimize it. With officer behaviour more and more intense scrutiny, Depolicing is a uniquely important
contribution to ongoing debates.
