Boys, you wanna give me some action?
|Subtitle||Interventions into Policing of Racialised Communities in Melbourne|
‘Boys, you wanna give me some action?’: Interventions into Policing of Racialised Communities in Melbourne examined African young peoples’ experience of policing in three regions of Melbourne, including the Western suburbs.
It found that ‘community policing’ initiatives do not ameliorate the commonly identified negative impacts of traditional over-policing practices. In fact, the relationships fostered between police and African young people through community policing initiatives were often used for intelligence gathering purposes and were ultimately damaging for the young people involved, leading in some cases to criminal proceedings.
