January 2015 marks the start of a new semester and a new cohort of students in my CRIM 2355 Police Deviance and Accountability course at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. My students are also contributors to this blog, and we will soon see a host of new posts on topics related to police deviance and accountability.
This time around, I have asked the contributors to prepare posts that address several broad thematic areas. The first set of posts (which will go live in two weeks) will provide profiles and commentaries on police accountability bodies. The second set of posts will focus on the emerging phenomenon of police body cameras. The third set will explore representations police deviance and accountability in popular culture.
‘Welcome’! to the new contributors. I look forward to reading your posts.
