About this Event

Images of policing surround us in everyday life; police stations, vehicles, officers in uniform are widely present in town centres, in our communities, and on our roads. Videos and picture of the police can be found online and on social media. Police stations are often important parts of the local landscape, even for those who never have need to go inside.

This seminar outlines an ongoing study that seeks to explore public perceptions of these images of police and to better understand how police are understood by the public. It draws upon theories developed in visual sociology and cultural criminology and explores the symbolic power of police stations, the potential impact of material culture of policing, and police visibility in social media.
