  • Japanese Atmospheres of Criminal Justice
    • Authors: Young A.
      Pages: 765 - 779
      Abstract: What is a criminal justice atmosphere' Defined as that connecting individuals within and to the spaces they occupy or move through, the study of criminal justice atmospheres can add to thinking within criminology about space, affect and the aesthetic. Examination of criminal justice atmospheres teaches much about how institutions operate as environments choreographing a range of spatial, affective and aesthetic attachments for citizens. Through ethnographic research in Japan, the article considers the atmospheres of three settings: the koban, or ‘police box’, a museum dedicated to the leisure consumption of policing and a metropolitan prison. Reflexive engagement with aspects of Japanese criminal justice can reveal points of congruence through which taken-for-granted understandings of Western criminal justice processes may be questioned, critiqued and enriched. Reading their atmospheres enables our understanding both of their intended modes of operation and the possibilities for their interruption.

  • Civilizing Imprisonment: The Limits of Scottish Penal Exceptionalism
    • Authors: Brangan L.
      Pages: 780 - 799
      Abstract: Focusing on imprisonment in Scotland during the 1980s–1990s, and drawing on extensive archival research, documentary analysis and interviews with seven retired civil servants and prison governors, this article is the first to provide an historical and analytical account of Scottish penal exceptionalism. It is argued that although not being punitive in its penal transformation, Scotland cannot rightly be defined as a historically moderate and humane exception when it comes to its prison system. Instead it is shown how the Scottish power to imprison was modernized and made more civilized, allowing prisons inevitable pains to be denied and submerged.

  • A De-Civilizing Reversal or System Normal' Rising Lethal Violence in
           Post-Recession Austerity United Kingdom
    • Authors: Ellis A.
      Pages: 862 - 878
      Abstract: This article offers incipient theoretical analysis and reflections on the recent rises in lethal violence recorded in the United Kingdom. The rises have attracted considerable media attention, with the more informed discussions drawing plausible causal associations between rising lethal violence and the policy context of austerity. Criminology, however, has been relatively silent so far on the recent rises and this potential association. In response, this article attempts to stimulate debate by critically considering the utility of one of the most widely cited theoretical frameworks in the study of historical patterns of violence in the western nations: the ‘civilizing process’. The article then moves on to consider the applicability of insights from the incipient ultra-realist criminological perspective. The article suggests that the ultra-realist concept of the ‘pseudo-pacification process’ provides a useful means of furthering our understanding of these rises in the current socioeconomic context of post-crash capitalism.

  • The Penal Voluntary Sector: A Hybrid Sociology
    • Authors: Tomczak P; Buck G.
      Pages: 898 - 918
      Abstract: The penal voluntary sector (PVS) is an important, complex, under-theorized area. Its non-profit, non-statutory organizations are highly significant in the operation of punishment around the world, yet ill understood. Burgeoning scholarship has begun to examine specific parts of the sector, particularly individualized service delivery. We offer a five-paradigm framework that more fully conceptualizes the PVS, including different types of service delivery and important campaigning work. Our hybrid framework applies and extends influential four-paradigm model of social theory given by Burrell and Morgan (Burrell, G. and Morgan, G. (1979), Sociological Paradigms and Organisational Analysis: Elements of the Sociology of Corporate Life. Routledge), which maps the theoretical diversity underpinning varying organizational activities. Our framework (1) provides ideal types, which illustrate the range, fluidity and hybridity of PVS programmes and practices and (2) highlights the (potential) roles of brokers in (re)directing activity.

  • Policing Migration and Racial Technologies
    • Authors: Parmar A.
      Pages: 938 - 957
      Abstract: The merger between familiar modes of policing with the impetus for migration control is reorganizing the racial politics of policing in unexpected ways. In the aim to decipher who is a citizen, who is a foreign national offender and who is eligible for deportation on the grounds of criminality, the role of criminal records agencies has expanded further into the work of policing, as have the collaborative working partnerships between immigration and the police. In this article, I discuss the findings from research, which examines the policing of migration in the United Kingdom, and specifically Operation Nexus, which brings together ordinary police work and migration control. I focus on how technologies of border control are imbricated with everyday police practices that are often influenced by race, thereby deepening the reach of racial technologies and their capacity to monitor and exclude racial others.

      Pages: 958 - 978
      Abstract: Entirely absent from debates about the desirability and potential impacts of police body-worn cameras (BWCs) are the views of a significant group on the other side of the lens—individuals who have recently experienced arrest by a police officer. In a bid to redress this significant gap, this article reports findings from the first study to examine arrestee views and experiences of police BWCs. Data from interviews with 907 police detainees reveal that they are largely in favour of officers wearing cameras, believing that they can provide greater accountability and improve the behaviour of both law enforcement officers and members of the public. Importantly, however, this support is contingent on a number of operational and procedural policies regulating the use of BWCs.

  • Have the England and Wales Guidelines Affected Sentencing Severity' An
           Empirical Analysis Using a Scale of Severity and Time-Series Analyses
    • Authors: Pina-Sánchez J; Gosling J, Chung H, et al.
      Pages: 979 - 1001
      Abstract: Sentence severity has increased in England and Wales in recent years. The causes of the increase remain unclear. One possible explanation relates to the introduction of sentencing guidelines, which seem to coincide in time with the increase in sentence severity. To date, investigations of this hypothesis have been limited to simple exploratory analyses or to specific offences. We use a new scale of sentence severity—developed using Thurstone scaling and the participation of 21 magistrates—and time-series modelling to explore whether a causal effect can be attributed to seven different guidelines. We corroborate the existence of an increase in sentence severity; however, we do not find conclusive evidence pointing at the guidelines having caused it.

           Evidence from the Crime Survey 2006–11

      Abstract: This is a correction notice for article azy013 (
      DOI :, published on 22 May 2018. In the section ‘Police Stop and Search Powers’, the term ‘stop and search’ was erroneously used in the following sentence: ‘Between 2006 and 2011, the recording of police stop and search by officers was compulsory’. The intended term was in fact ‘stop and account’ and the author did not mean to imply that police recording was not compulsory before 2006. This sentence has been corrected online.

  • Alternatives to custody: Evidence from police force areas in England and
    • Authors: Abramovaite J; Bandyopadhyay S, Bhattacharya S, et al.
      Pages: 800 - 822
      Abstract: England and Wales have some of the highest incarceration rates in the developed world. Recent policy reforms have focused on developing alternatives to custody that offer credible protection for the public, and justice for victims of crime. This article uses unique detailed panel-level data acquired from the Ministry of Justice for all Police Force Areas from 2002 to 2013 in England and Wales to analyse the effects of custodial and non-custodial sentences on recorded crime. Our results suggest that non-custodial sentences can be an effective alternative to custody at reducing property crime but their effect is less consistent for violent crime. This suggests that non-custodial sentences are credible, cost-effective substitutes to incarceration.

  • Community Policing Goes South: Policy Mobilities and New Geographies of
           Criminological Theory
    • Authors: Méndez Beck M; Jaffe R.
      Pages: 823 - 841
      Abstract: Policymakers seeking to design more effective crime control strategies increasingly reference ‘best practices’ developed in other contexts, enabling the translocal mobility of ‘zero tolerance’ or ‘hotspot policing’. Recent work on policy mobilities shows that such policies, and the conceptual models underlying them, are often contested and modified as they travel. Connecting emergent scholarship on crime control policy mobilities to recent calls to extend criminological theorization outside the global North, this article seeks to understand what happens when community policing travels. Specifically, it unpacks the often-implicit models of urban governance underlying community policing, examining the mobilities and mutations of these conceptual models as community policing is exported from cities in the United States to inner-city neighbourhoods in Kingston, Jamaica.

  • ‘Kill all the Sorcerers’: The Interconnections between Sorcery,
           Violence, War and Peace in Bougainville
    • Authors: Forsyth M.
      Pages: 842 - 861
      Abstract: This paper provides new insights into how violence in war structures peacetime violence by highlighting how war alters ontological positions or worldviews, such as those concerning the relevance of threat of harm through spiritual means. It presents a detailed case study of sorcery accusations and related violence before, during and after Bougainville’s decade long civil war. New empirical data are used to illustrate the mechanisms through which violence against those accused of sorcery was enabled and legitimized during the war and how this remains linked to contemporary sorcery accusations and related violence two decades after peace. Drawing on Braithwaite and D’Costa’s framework of cascades of violence, the paper also tracks the ways in which sorcery discourses, practices and beliefs cascade to war.

  • A Typology of Street Robbery and Gang Organization: Insights from
           Qualitative Research in Scotland
    • Authors: Harding S; Deuchar R, Densley J, et al.
      Pages: 879 - 897
      Abstract: Utilizing interviews with 42 current and ex-street offenders, this study explores the relationship between street gang organization and robbery. Robbery type is affected by level of organization exhibited by the gang. For recreational and territorial young street gangs, robbery is opportunistic, occurring in a diffuse manner, and conducted individually, even when others are present as ‘backup’. For criminal gangs, robbery is often planned in advance with proceeds of crime divided more evenly amongst group members. Serious Organized Crime gangs are typically more specialized; thus, robbery may often be the gang’s main ‘occupation’. For organized crime groups, robbery most often occurs in the illegitimate market, but can be aimed at legitimate and highly profitable institutions. We make sense of these findings with reference to street capital theory and present implications for future research and practice.

  • Forensic Science and Expert Testimony in Wrongful Convictions: A study of
           decision-making at the Criminal Cases Review Commission
    • Authors: Hoyle C.
      Pages: 919 - 937
      Abstract: The Criminal Cases Review Commission reviews possible wrongful convictions in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, referring back to the Court of Appeal cases where there is a ‘real possibility’ that the conviction is unsafe. This article presents findings from a four-year empirical study of decision-making within the Commission. It explores how Commission staff exercise their discretionary powers in identifying and investigating possible wrongful convictions from approximately 1,400 applications a year, referring just a few back to the Court. It focuses on a sample of cases that turned on forensic evidence and expert testimony, showing that while there is some variation in individual caseworkers’ approaches to investigation, decision-making is shaped by the law and internal policies such that reasonably consistent decision frames emerge.
