Changing police culture : policing in a multicultural society by Janet B. L Chan( Book )
13 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 426 libraries worldwide
Police culture is often considered as both a cause of police deviance and an obstacle for police reform. In this case study of police racism and police reform in Australia, the author provides a critical assessment of police initiative in response to the problem of police/minorities relations. The book examines the dynamics of change and resistance within a police organisation and captures the complexity and unpredictability of the change process. It questions the utility of the traditional conception of police culture and proposes a new framework for understanding the inter-relationships between the structural conditions of police work, police cultural knowledge, and police practice. A highly original and valuable contribution to policing studies, this book is both empirically rich and theoretically informed

The deterrent effect of capital punishment : a review of the research evidence by Janet B. L Chan( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Capital punishment has been abolished in all Australian States since the mid 1980s. The United States of America is the only Western democracy that has retained the death penalty. The aim of this bulletin is to analyse and summarise the empirical evidence on the deterrent effect of capital punishment. It provides a survey of the results of 74 research projects published between 1952 and 2003. These projects employed a variety of methodologies, including economic modelling, and covered a range of geographical areas and time periods mainly in the United States. The majority of the studies show that the use of capital punishment did not deter the commission of homicide; this remains the case when studies that used relatively unsophisticated research designs were excluded. The bulletin concludes that three decades of deterrence research since Ehrlich's (1975a) economic model has failed to deliver conclusive evidence on the deterrent effect of capital punishment
