Policing the Waterfront

Chapter 4 explores the extent of public and private linkages, and the significance of social capital in shaping policing activities at the first of two case study waterfronts—the Los Angeles/Long Beach Port Complex. This analysis scrutinises the pervasiveness of social capital across this waterfront security network by examining the intricate web of actors at play, interpreting the relational ties, and identifying the distinct patterns, social structures, and trust norms that define these policing partnerships. Accordingly, this chapter shows that social capital is exploited by public and private actors at the Port Complex for crime control purposes, enabling productive engagement on multiple levels: through inter-agency partnerships, exclusively private partnerships, and public-private co-production. However, the results reveal that access to social capital is not completely without restraint across the network, and that these crime control partnerships are not entirely unaffected.
