Keywords:rural policing, International Society for the Study of Rural Crime, France, Australia, Scotland, challenges, innovations
Rural crime and criminal justice practices and responses face different challenges from those experienced in urban contexts.
A practitioner-focused roundtable, convened by The International Society for the Study of Rural Crime (www.issrc.net), investigated challenges and innovations in international contexts on issues surrounding rural policing. The roundtable was held online on 20 October 2020 and was moderated by Dr Jessica Peterson, formerly of the University of Nebraska at Kearney (now an Assistant Professor at Southern Oregon University).
Panellists were asked to respond to two key questions:
- What are the key challenges for rural policing?
- What innovations are being deployed internationally to address these challenges?
The following are transcripts of the four presentations from the panelists on this Roundtable.
