Policing Contingencies

Peter K. Manning

University of Chicago Press

In this chapter, the nature of compliance and legitimacy during an organizational transition in a police department is explored ethnographically, using a case study of community policing in Western (a pseudonym for the Midwestern city). Reform and reorganization in Western, including four chiefs and three deputy chiefs in seven years, were constant from 1992 through 2001. Policing reform, especially “community policing,” has implications for performances, routines, and teamwork, but also for the drama of control and command.

Keywords:   organizational change, police department, community policing, policing reform, drama, control, command
