Abstract

This paper explores the growth of the ‘new’ private security industry and private policing arrangements, policing cyberspace. It argues there has been a significant change in policing which is equivalent to the ‘quiet revolution’ associated with private policing that Shearing and Stenning observed in the 1970s and 1980s, marking a ‘second quiet revolution’. The paper then explores some of the regulatory questions that arise from these changes, which have been largely ignored, to date, by scholars of policing and policy-makers making some clear recommendations for the future focus of them.
