While traditional policing celebrated male officers as masculine crime fighters who were tough, aloof, and physically intimidating, policewomen were characterized as too soft and emotional for patrol assignments and were relegated to roles focusing on children, other women, or clerical tasks. With the advent of community policing, women's perceived skills are finally finding a legitimate place in police work, and law enforcement structures now encourage such previously undervalued feminine traits as trust, cooperation, compassion, interpersonal communication, and conflict resolution.In this illuminating study of gender and community policing, Susan L. Miller draws on a combination of survey data, forthright interviews with a diverse mix of police officers, and extensive fieldwork conducted in a midwestern city where community policing has been practiced for over a decade. She describes the differences and similarities in policing styles of male and female officers, considers the relationships that develop between neighborhood police on foot and patrol officers in squad cars, and explores the interactions between neighborhood officers and community members.Miller confronts such questions as how police reconcile incompatible images of masculinity and femininity; how actions of neighborhood police officers compare with those of traditional rapid response patrol officers; how community police cope with resistance from the rank and file; and how gender and gender-role expectations shape police activities and the evaluation of new skills.Gender and Community Policing provides both a feminist framework for community policing and a fresh examination of how race, gender, and sexual orientation affect police image, identity, and methods.… (mais)

Traditionally, policework has been seen as eminently masculine, wherein policemen are brave, physically intimidating and strong, aloof from the personal concerns of their communities. But the inclusion of women in policing, and the rise of community policing (where officers are assigned to a specific neighborhood and get involved in the community there, as opposed to answering calls from a squad car), has complicated this view. Initially female police officers performed secretarial and counselor-like duties, such as taking care of the children of suspects or typing up reports. And initially community policy was seen as soft or not real police work, since most of the officers' time was spent going to community meetings, talking to residents, playing games with kids, etc instead of seeking danger. Over time, gender roles have become more fluid, and the efficacy of community policing has been proven time and time again.

This book is a great examination of community policing as an idea and in practice. I wish there had been more information from the non-police side of things; the interviews and interests presented are nearly all from law enforcement. I think it would be interesting to get an idea of the ways people view community policing vs patrolling. ( )
