Abstract

The A. considers the changes in the organization of policing based on the idea of surveillance. It is argued that police reform involved transformations in the deployment of policemen across space and in the definition of administrative hierarchies. It also meant changes in the conception of public space. Applying this framework to the example of the Portsmouth Borough police it is demonstrated that the police force has been transformed through locally initiated reforms
