Policing the Frontier: Christmas in Borroloola -

Author/editor: Kerins, S
Year published: 2013
Volume no.: 109
Issue no.: 3


A recent police operation in the Northern Territory community of Borroloola invites reflection on best practice for community policing and alcohol management. Community policing is fundamentally an alliance where the police and community identify and solve community problems together, with the essential ingredient being active participation. This is not always easy to achieve, as it often requires a profound change in organisational culture and practice.

Keywords: community policing, alcohol management.
