ARC Discovery Grant

This project analysed three basic means of enhancing the resources of public law enforcement agencies: circumstances wherein police command cooperation from private institutions; those where police buy and sell services; and those where police are the beneficiaries of private sponsorship. The potentials and limits of these three forms of exchange were studied in several Australian jurisdictions, in light of global developments. The project assisted governments in coping with the growing demand for police services in a climate of enduring fiscal restraint.
