Public Events and Police Response

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the police response with a view to elucidating the relationship between public events and police response. Policing systems differ across urban and rural settings due to differences in environmental and organizational factors and this variation in styles has its impact on public order policing. This chapter also looks at an empirical assessment of field level response, before moving to an in-depth discussion on the impact of the nature of an event on police intervention and on the use of force by the police. This forms the basis for a preliminary assessment of the impact of the nature of public event on police response, and for developing of statistical model for explaining the event response dynamics.

Keywords:   police response, policing systems, empirical assessment, police intervention, public event
