Supervisors and enforcement officers in the (semi-) public space

an international comparative study (full text available only in Dutch)

Summary

Since the early 1990s in the Netherlands, surveillance and enforcement are no longer the exclusive tasks of the police alone. In addition to the regular public police there are now all kinds of (non-police) guards, patrollers, wardens and officers working in the public space, under the eyes of the general audience.
The general research question of this study is:
Which non-police providers of policing are present in other countries with tasks concerning public safety in the (semi)public space, what is their position, what are experiences there, and what may be lessons to be learned for the Netherlands’ situation?
