Book Discussion
"Making Sense of Youth Crime: A Comparison of Police Intelligence in the United States and France"

In their new book, Professor Jacqueline Ross and co-author Thierry Delpeuch provide an empirical study of policing in the United States and France. Drawing on ten years of field work, they contend that the police in both countries should be thought about as an amalgam of five distinct professional cultures or 'intelligence regimes'-each of which can be found in any given police department in both the United States and France. In particular, they contend that what police do as knowledge workers and how they make sense of the social problems such as collective offending by juveniles varies with the professional subcommunities or 'intelligence regimes' in which their particular knowledge work is embedded. The same problem can be looked at in fundamentally different ways even within a single police department, depending on the intelligence regime through which the problem is refracted.
