Police Detectives, Drug Law Enforcement and Proactive Investigation

Matthew Bacon

Clarendon Studies in Criminology

  • Presents the findings of a major ethnographic study of police detectives involved in the policing of drugs, based on over 500 hours' of observation
  • Advances our understanding of police culture, organisational reform, the role of the police in drug control, and what can be done to reduce drug-related harms and the negative consequences of prohibition
  • Scrutinises the impact of intelligence-led policing strategies and the regulation of investigatory powers at both organisational and occupational levels of policing
  • Provides a broad review of the theoretical and empirical literature on police detectives, proactive investigation, drug law enforcement and illegal drug markets across a range of disciplines
