Abstract

This paper focuses on three models of policing that have variously been exercised in relation to ethnic minority young people in Australia. As part of this, the paper critically explores policing that is primarily based upon coercion ('the bad'), and, at its worst, explicitly discriminatory forms of zero tolerance ('the ugly'), and compares these with police interventions that favour a more constructive and positive community-based approach ('the good'). The paper provides a comprehensive review of literature on police-ethnic minority youth relations in the Australian context, as well as indicating recent strategic developments within police services around the country. © 2009 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.
