Policing and Media free pdf This book examines the relationship between policing, media and the public and analyses the shifting techniques and technologies through which they communicate. In a critical discussion of contemporary and emerging modes of mediatized police work, Lee and McGovern demonstrate how the police engage with the public through ever-expanding communications and information technologies. The book questions the rationalities that are driving police/media relations and how they differ (or not) from the ways these relationships have operated historically- asks what new technologies are influencing and being deployed by policing agencies and policing PR professionals and why- examines how operational policing is shaping and being shaped by new technologies of communication and explores forms of resistance that are evident to the manufacture of preferred images of policing and the effects of such resistances.
