The Local Governance of Crime: Appeals to Community and Partnerships

Adam Crawford

Oxford University Press

This chapter assesses the theoretical explanations for the nature of ‘partnerships’ as constituting new forms of local governance. It also discusses the key theoretical debates concerning the location of social power – with particular regard to the formation and implementation of local crime control policy – and the manner in which it has been transformed by recent developments. It examines relations between the central state and local intermediary bodies. Then, it considers the implications of the research findings for the nature of relations at the local level, within and between the local state, interest groups, and associations within the new policy partnerships. In particular, it evaluates the extent to which the private-business sector has become involved in shaping the policy process. Finally, it explores broadly some of the possible implications of the earlier insights for the form and substance of the policies themselves.

Keywords:   partnerships, social power, crime-control policy, local state, private business
