Description

In recent years, old industrial cities have felt the pressure to revitalise and regenerate their failing economic base, adapting their system of governance, embarking upon local economic development and attempting to attract growth industries. One of the key aspects of urban life and policy deemed necessary to be improved in order to succeed in this is crime control, including policing and community safety. Illustrated by a case study of Glasgow, this book explores the connections, practices and policies of economic regeneration, community safety and policy. Beginning with an overview of the issues of crime control and city centre upgrading, it then examines how practices of regulating city spaces are carried out using community safety policies, policing of homeless people and street prostitutes, and by regulating businesses in the wake of economic restructuring.
