'The important contribution of this book is that it defines and outlines the dimensions of strategies for crime prevention and control that fall between formal policing and citizen responsibility as well as provides an evaluation of current and past third party policing efforts. This is important because it enables researchers and practitioners not only to have a common language by which to refer to this activity, but also specific guidance for practice.' Policing: An International Journal of Police Strategies & Management 'Third Party Policing is a readable and comprehensive review of some of the most prominent literature in policing research ... a thought provoking treasury of ideas for all those involved in crime control. If you are looking for one book that charts the intensification of policing activities in the modern era then this is it.' Policing: An International Journal of Police Strategies & Management
