Municipal Policing in Scotland is based on current research and policing experience and asks what municipal policing is in modern day Scotland. It examines the role of community policing, civilianisation in the police, private sector involvement, surveillance and CCTV, the role of the Scottish Government and police authorities, police governance and accountability. Up-to-date research on community wardens is included and the part they play in community safety is commented upon. In conclusion the author gives his views on the future of the contemporary model of municipal policing and whether a future national police service in Scotland is inevitable.

An index and bibliography are included.
