Democratic Policing

How Would We Know It If We Saw It?

(p.489) Chapter 21 Democratic Policing
Race, Ethnicity, and Policing

Matthew J. Hickman

NYU Press

This chapter calls for more rigorous monitoring of the manner in which police conduct themselves and serve the public by tying it to democratic policing—an orientation that requires the ready flow and capture of information related to police accountability, transparency, and fairness. It describes the paradox of how the United States is a strong advocate of democratic policing abroad but is not in a position to propagate these ideals due to lack of necessary information. The remainder of the chapter provides specifics for applying the model of democratic policing inward by outlining the national indicators of policing that currently exist.

Keywords:   police conduct, democratic policing, police accountability, transparency, fairness, United States, policing
