The Fifteenth Annual International Police Executive Symposium brought together 65 police executives, government officials, academics, and researchers to discuss issues relating to all aspects of policing in a global community. It focused on policing without borders, the need for national and international cooperation among policing agencies, and the need for cooperation between the police, the academic community, private policing agencies, and the general public. Drawn from the presentations made at this symposium and supplemented with additional input from eminent experts, Police Without Borders: The Fading Distinction between Local and Global reflects the current status of research on this timely and critical topic.

Topics discussed include:

  • Policing activity, human rights, and corruption
  • Female policing in India compared to other countries
  • Challenges and obstacles in policing in Slovenia, China, Asia, and the Pacific
  • Strategies for preventing juvenile delinquency in Japan and Hong Kong
  • The threat caused by nonreturnable arrest warrants in Canada
  • An insider’s look at the United Kingdom’s Integrated Special Branch, an intelligence unit
  • Virtual organized crime in cyberspace
  • A successful public housing safety initiative in the Eastern District of New York

Highlighting individual differences in police theory, style, and practice around the world, this volume opens a dialogue in which police agencies and academics can learn from other cultures, recognize their similarities, and move towards an improved global policing methodology.
