Summary:Policing Space is a fascinating firsthand account of how the Los
Angeles Police Department attempts to control its vast, heterogeneous
territory. As such, the book offers a rare, ground-level look at the
relationship between the control of space and the exercise of power.
Author Steve Herbert spent eight months observing one patrol division
of the LAPD on the job. A compelling story in itself, his fieldwork
with the officers in the Wilshire Division affords readers a close
view of the complex factors at play in how the police define and
control territory, how they make and mark space. Unique in its
application of fieldwork and theory to this complex subject, Policing
Space should prove valuable to readers in urban and political
geography, urban and political sociology, and criminology, as well as
those who wonder about the workings of the LAPD.
