What roles do racism, law, and crime play in community policing? Community policing as a social activity is contextualized culturally, mediated politically, and articulated in an exclusionary form. Exclusion plays an integral role in State's quest for legitimacy and in criminalizing racial groups. Law plays a central role in the reproduction and legitimation of forms of exclusion. The question of how racism persists is explained in terms of the power to criminalize through the discourse of community policing.

Students and teachers of criminology, sociology, law, policy makers and criminal justice professionals can apply this book to the problems of racial injustice in society.
