Policing Terrorism and Police–Community Relations: Views of Arab Minority in Israel
Pages 14

Research on police over the past three decades has been focused primarily on questions of crime and disorder, and community. However, since the 9/11 terrorist attack, the United States and other Western countries have been challenged by a new set of responsibilities for policing, which are likely to require changes in police strategies and organization (Bayley and Weisburd 2009; International Association of Chiefs of Police 2005; National Research Council 2004). Although several studies have been written on the policing of terrorism in recent years, we still know very little about the impact of policing terrorism on society, and more specifically on minority groups.
