Noting the challenges posed by crime rates and traditional responses to crime, Nicholl examines the potential in community policing and the risks to this approach. With this in mind, Nicholl relates the background to community policing in a section of London. This leads to a consideration of the nature of community policing, followed by discussion on problems in developing community policing. Nicholl concludes by connecting all of this with community justice and projecting future opportunities and threats for community justice.
