Terrorist threats and police performance: A study of Israeli communities

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Following this assumption, scholars and practitioners have begun to consider how the police task changes when terrorism is added to the list of concerns that local police must address (Fishman 2005; IACP 2005; Innes 2006; Kelling and Bratton 2006; Weisburd, Feucht, Hakimi, Mock, and Perry 2009; Weisburd, Jonathan, and Perry 2009). Some scholars have argued that heightened terrorism threats will naturally lead to dramatic changes in the orientation and strategies of policing. Over the past few decades, police in Western democracies have become much more concerned with local community problems. Some have termed this type of policing as “low policing,” emphasizing its concentration on how the police can deal with crime, disorder, and fear in local communities (Bayley and Weisburd 2009; Brodeur 1983, 2003).
