New book on ‘Discretionary Police Powers to Punish’ by Dr Clare Farmer
Through an analysis of the implementation and application of Victoria’s police-imposed public area banning provisions, this book offers critical insights into the use and effect of police powers to punish. The complex area of legal punishments which are discretionary, prohibitive and imposed on-the-spot, embodies the broader challenge of balancing due process, individual rights and community protection. The study provides a basis for subsequent criminological explorations of the effectiveness of banning and exclusion in tackling issues of public disorder and anti-social behaviour.
