The Dynamics of Police Reflection

The Dynamics of Police Reflection

(p.70) Four The Dynamics of Police Reflection
Policing Contingencies

Peter K. Manning

University of Chicago Press

This chapter uses frame analysis to examine how policing is “seen,” what the dynamics of this seeing are, and how the image(s) of policing has changed in the last thirty years. It is part of the movement toward mediated social control and its effects. The bulk of the chapter is given over to a frame analysis of how policing is shown. Using Goffman's Frame Analysis, it is argued that policing is framed in four quite distinctive ways. The aim in describing these ways of keying, and their internal and external variants, as well as the police-media dialogue, is to suggest changes in the complexity of the visual environment of modern policing.

Keywords:   frame analysis, policing, police-media dialogue, social control, Goffman, visual environment
