This book provides a timely addition to the scholarship on policing in the context of 21st century 24/7 connectivity, smart phones and devices, and online communities. In particular it looks at the prospects of what the authors call E-COP, Electronic Community Orientated Policing. Hu and Lovrich suggest that policing is moving quickly into a period where community orientated policing is moving online – with variations on the themes of traditional COP. The concept is backed up by the findings of a number of empirical studies, inter-alia thematising and analyzing police use of various kinds of electronic (social) media. The book not only situates itself in this empirical context, but also provides a philosophical basis for the theory. Whether or not E-COP is ever completely and competently realized by police organizations, we’ll need to wait and see. However, the book provides a compelling case that it should be, and a roadmap as to how it can operate. It’s a book you would hope senior police would read.
