Policing at the periphery: Understanding police work in the remote Northern islands

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

What is it like to be a police officer living and working in a small remote island, 220 miles by sea from the Scottish mainland? What does policing look like when crime rates are low, populations small and scattered, and communities are separated by sea? This article reports on the first ever study of policing in remote islands. I spent a year working with police teams in two remote archipelagos, exploring the challenges and experiences of island policing, and the implications for policing across Scotland and beyond.
