Chapter 3 builds upon the theoretical foundation laid in the previous chapter, and begins by providing a descriptive assessment of the two case study ports at Melbourne and Los Angeles/Long Beach, introducing the myriad of public and private actors that share security responsibilities on the waterfront. Using social network analysis techniques, the entirety of the connections between these actors is mapped to depict the security networks as they stand in each jurisdiction. The sociograms produced offer initial (and illustrative) insights into the complexity of networked-policing on the waterfronts in Melbourne and Los Angeles, and open the door for a further decompilation of these security networks in later chapters. In particular, these assessments highlight the complexity of security in contemporary waterfront settings—dominated by ‘new’ forms of policing and approaches to crime control that include a raft of inter-agency arrangements, exclusively private collaboration, and public-private partnerships.
