Throughout the United Kingdom, the appeal to partnership pervades the language of policing, crime prevention and crime reduction. In Northern Ireland, policing structures have gone through a substantial transition and period of reform since the Independent Commission on Policing reported in 1999. The language of partnership also pervades this transition. Based upon in-depth empirical analysis, this thesis provides a comprehensive, critical and enlightening account of the role partnership policing initiatives are playing in Northern Ireland. It also provides a discussion of the challenges that partnership structures face, the issues that beset them and the symbolic role they play in the vision and trajectory of police reform.
