Partnership policing and road policing: is there value?

Bates, L, Anderson, L.


ARSC conference 2018

Traditionally road policing has relied on deterrence theory to guide its interventions. However, more recently, there has been interest in exploring alternative frameworks. One possible framework that may be worth exploring within a road safety context is partnership policing. This poster will explore the validity of this approach for young drivers. In this area police could partner with parents. Although further research is required, it does appear that road policing policy and practice could be improved by exploring alternative frameworks such as partnership policing.
