  • Locking out emotions in locking up older prisoners' Emotional labour
           of Belgian prison officers and prison nurses
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 9 February 2020Source: International Journal of Law, Crime and JusticeAuthor(s): Diete HumbletAbstractThis contribution looks at the emotional labour of prison professionals in the wake of an increasing number of older adults populating this institution. The rationale behind this selective focus is twofold. Firstly, the topic of ageing behind bars has only received scant attention, even though this phenomenon is also increasingly penetrating prison walls. Secondly, little attention has been paid to the performance of emotional labour by practitioners in prison systems working with the specific population of ageing prisoners. Against this background, this contribution reflects on the ambivalent emotional nature of the work of not only the ‘professionals of custody’ but also of the ‘professionals of care’ in a prison setting. This topic will be examined by drawing on cross-disciplinary insights stemming from a wider range of literature and is underpinned by new data originating from an empirical ethnographic study into the meaning of imprisonment in later life in Belgium.
       
  • Making the ‘Invisible’ visible: Custodial violence and the civil
           liberties-democratic rights movement in India
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 7 January 2020Source: International Journal of Law, Crime and JusticeAuthor(s): Preeti ChauhanAbstractCivil Liberties and Democratic Rights Movement (henceforth CLDR movement) in India has been documenting and highlighting the issue of custodial violence for long. This paper attempts to cull out the nuances of the engagement of the civil and democratic right movement in India with the issue of custodial violence over a period of time. The paper analyses some of the reports by the CLDR organizations, particularly, People's Union for Democratic Rights(PUDR) which are based upon the fact-findings done by these civil rights organizations. The fact-finding reports are examined to form an understanding of the process through which CLDR organizations approach the issue of custodial violence and the challenges therein. It also reveals the manner in which the CLDR groups foreground the voices of the people who suffered.The paper further seeks to show that the intervention of the civil and democratic rights movement on the issue of custodial violence in India made the practice of violence in custody ‘visible’ to the larger public pointing to the systematic and institutional failure of the Government to address the issue. Through its fact findings, the CLDR movement has tried to document and disseminate facts regarding torture and deaths in custody of security establishments like the police and sexual violence in custody. In this process, the movement has also continuously jostled with the given understanding on ‘custody’ arguing for an expansion of its meaning and has sought to redefine the notion of crime, criminality and punishment.
       
  • Supply reduction policy against new psychoactive substances in China:
           Policy framework and implementation
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 24 December 2019Source: International Journal of Law, Crime and JusticeAuthor(s): Minqi ZhaoAbstractThe global new psychoactive substances (NPS) phenomenon has been facilitated by the illicit supply thereof in China. In response, Chinese authorities updated laws and regulations, and engaged in law enforcement efforts at the national and international levels. However, what are the legal responses and how they function to reduce the illicit supply of NPS have rarely been addressed. This study aims to fill the policy gap by focusing on the design of the policy framework and the way of implementation. The study found that zero-tolerance and the state-centric policy mobilized social actors’ engagement involuntarily. In addition to the passive ethos, the competing regulatory power and incentives, and economic and political contexts appear to further limit the efficiencies of law enforcement. The study concludes that focusing on deficiencies that can be corrected while considering the economic and political contexts would benefit the efforts to reduce the supply of NPS.
       
  • ‘You can't tell anyone how you really feel’: Exploring emotion
           management and performance among prison staff who have experienced the
           death of a prisoner
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 18 December 2019Source: International Journal of Law, Crime and JusticeAuthor(s): Colette BarryAbstractThis article explores how prison staff manage their emotions when dealing with the death of a prisoner. It seeks to extend current understandings of emotions in prison work by exploring emotion management and performance among prison staff who have experienced a prisoner's death. It utilises Hochschild's (1983) concept of emotional labour, which has informed previous studies of emotion in prison work, and contributes to this existing research by applying extensions of Hochschild's ideas developed by Bolton (2005) and Korczynski (2003). Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 17 Irish Prison Service staff who have experienced prisoner deaths. A contribution of this article is that it demonstrates the shifting emotional practices and preoccupations of prison staff through the stages of dealing with a prisoner's death. This article finds that shared expectations regarding the management of emotional responses to prisoner deaths promote the necessity of concealing emotional vulnerabilities within and beyond the prison walls.
       
  • Beyond the western crime drop: Violence, property offences, and the state
           in Turkey 1990–2016
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 12 December 2019Source: International Journal of Law, Crime and JusticeAuthor(s): Kıvanç AtakAbstractTemporal changes in crime have long attracted scholarly attention. Much research on the recent trajectory of crime rates is dominated by the crime drop thesis in western democracies, with only little input from other societal contexts. The present work offers the first explorative inquiry into a subset violent and property crimes in Turkey over the last quarter-century. Data collected from judicial records, police reports on offences, prison and causes of death statistics are read primarily through the lens of state response to crime, with the notable exception of homicide. Results reveal partial evidence for a declining behavioral trend in the case of homicide – a finding that furthers current debates about the crime drop thesis. Rather mixed evidence is documented for robbery, theft and assault, but a common marked increase in the number of offences, suspects and convicts received into prison. Implications are discussed by reference to the emergent punitive turn in the Turkish penal regime, and enhanced police capacity to control crime.
       
  • Robocop - The depersonalisation of police officers and their emotions: A
           diary study of emotional labor and burnout in front line British police
           officers
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 28 November 2019Source: International Journal of Law, Crime and JusticeAuthor(s): Sarah-Jane Lennie, E. Crozier Sarah, Anna SuttonAbstractPolicing has long been recognized as an emotionally distressing and stressful occupation, and recent years have seen a marked increase in psychological illness within the police service of Britain. Research into the emotional labor of police officers and its psychological consequences is limited and has predominately engaged quantitative methodologies. This paper takes a mixed methods approach, exploring emotional labor and the relationship with burnout within a large police force in the north of England. The use of audio diary provides in-depth exploration of feeling and display rules operating within the police service. Narrative analysis of thirty-eight audio diary entries and a focus group is integrated with results from the Maslach and Jackson Burnout Inventory. Findings indicated depersonalisation as a requirement of feeling and display rules, a strategy also used as a form of coping, as well as experienced as an aspect of burnout. Emotional suppression went beyond interactions with members of the public, continuing into peer and family relationships, with many officers never expressing their true emotions. This presents an important opportunity for the police service of England and Wales to better understand and respond to the emotional pressures and coping mechanisms that officer's experience within their lives.
       
  • The establishment of the Absichtsdelikte model of criminal law for
           controlling terrorist crimes: The case of China
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 25 November 2019Source: International Journal of Law, Crime and JusticeAuthor(s): Kunyi Jian, Peng Nai, Tao Yu, Guang YangAbstractUnder the influence of religious extremism, terrorists in China have used crime and violence as a means of creating terror and spreading panic in order to achieve the goal of splitting China. While criminal law could be an effective instrument for fighting against terrorism, the essential characteristics of terrorism in China require a reconstruction of the criminal legal system around the Absichtsdelikte model by introducing terrorist motivation into the constitutive elements of terrorist crimes. This article argues that this rather innovative legislative model can help to align the crime with the punishment in the field of counter-terrorism legislation and would be helpful for crime prevention as well.
       
  • The effect of ethical corporate culture on anti-fraud strategies in South
           Korean financial companies: Mediation of whistleblowing and a sectoral
           comparison approach in depository institutions
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 22 November 2019Source: International Journal of Law, Crime and JusticeAuthor(s): Joon Bae Suh, Hee Sub ShimAbstractInternal fraud in financial companies can have a devastating effect on the economy, once demonstrated in the Savings and Loan Crisis in the US, and the Savings Bank Scandal in Korea. Using path analysis methods, this study attempts to explore direct and indirect pathways among three respective dimensions of ethical culture, whistleblowing policy, and overall evaluation of anti-fraud strategies in two financial sectors in South Korea (i.e., commercial bank vs. small and medium sized depository institutions). The study finds that more vibrant and proactive managerial efforts, such as setting an ‘ethical tone at the top’ and implementing an effective ‘ethics training’ are necessary to develop a whistleblowing policy in an organization, which in return, positively affect the employees' perceived corporate anti-fraud strategies. This finding, in particular, can be beneficial for small and medium sized depository institutions, which require more cost-effective measures to have a competitive edge in financial markets.
       
  • ‘The right kind of person for the job’' Emotional labour and
           organizational professionalism in probation
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 22 November 2019Source: International Journal of Law, Crime and JusticeAuthor(s): Matt TidmarshAbstractThis paper utilises the concept of organizational professionalism to illustrate the importance of emotional labour for probation practice, as well as its potential consequences for practitioners. Based on an ethnographic study of a probation office led by a privately-owned Community Rehabilitation Company, the paper demonstrates that probation values are operationalised through the performance of emotional labour with offenders. However, the implementation of the Transforming Rehabilitation (TR) reforms has exacerbated long-term trends away from working with ‘people’ towards working with ‘things’ – that is, the information technologies used to log performance. That practitioners are willing to forgo their administrative responsibilities to spend time with their clients suggests emotional labour is fundamental to practitioner understandings of professional identity. The paper thus demonstrates that the challenges of balancing a client-centred ideology of service with the increased administrative pressures that have accompanied the TR reforms have further exposed probation practitioners to stress, strain, and sickness.
       
  • Managing emotion in probation practice: Display rules, values and the
           performance of emotional labour
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 22 November 2019Source: International Journal of Law, Crime and JusticeAuthor(s): Chalen Westaby, Andrew Fowler, Jake PhillipsAbstractThis article uses the concept of emotional labour to explore how probation practitioners, conform to, and negotiate the display rules and values underpinning their work with clients. We consider the sources of emotional labour, focussing on the values of probation practice and how these are manifested through occupational, organisational and societal display rules. We then analyse a further layer of display rules; integrating, neutral and differentiating display rules which further inform our thinking about how emotional labour is performed. Using the lens of emotional labour we document the breadth of emotional labour performed by probation practitioners in their interactions with clients including the use of empathy, humour and the suppression of anger. In particular our research brings to light the display of so called ‘negative’ emotions such as anger and frustration, and the complex, and sometimes conflicting, relationship between occupational and organisational display rules and the values underpinning these rules.
       
  • Why do People's complaints still fall on the police' Confidence in the
           police in Trinidad and Tobago
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 20 November 2019Source: International Journal of Law, Crime and JusticeAuthor(s): Hyunin Baek, Sungil Han, Randy SeepersadAbstractLaw enforcement agencies in Caribbean countries, especially Trinidad and Tobago, have been struggling with low levels of public confidence. To examine the public-police relationship in these countries, this study proposed and tested two models of public confidence in the police using data from a sample of 1,595 adults in Trinidad and Tobago. Findings from Structural Equation Modeling indicated that public confidence in the police was driven not only by actual crime and fear of crime but also by other variables such as community cohesion, social problems, and informal social control. The findings provide valuable insights which help to clarify the nature of the public-police relationship in Trinidad and Tobago and suggest that attention to a wider range of variables can be used to build public confidence in the police.
       
  • Police reform as institutional change: Symbols and dilemmas
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 18 November 2019Source: International Journal of Law, Crime and JusticeAuthor(s): Jan TerpstraAbstractMany police forces in Western and Northern Europe have been confronted with reform, aimed at drastic changes of their structure, organization, and governance. In this paper these police reforms are understood, not as instrumental, rational processes, but as processes of institutional change. The developments of the Dutch police reform since the late 1980s and especially the Dutch police reform of 2013 are used to show the relevance of the institutional approach. After a sketch of the main outlines of institutional theory and some of the debates that were raised by this approach, the paper concentrates on two critical aspects of institutional theory for understanding processes of police reform: reform symbols and institutional dilemmas. This analysis shows that the symbolic level is fundamental for understanding police reform. Symbols are used both to present and promote the reform, and as counter-symbols to resist it. The result is a complex interplay at the symbolic level. This paper also shows that institutional dilemmas are main drivers of police reform. But on the other hand, the police reforms did not alter these institutional dilemmas fundamentally, an example of the fact that police reform results in both change and continuity. The paper concludes with the suggestion that this institutional approach, with much attention paid to the symbolic level and to institutional dilemmas, may also be relevant for the study of innovations in policing and of the use of new technologies in police work.
       
  • It's not depersonalization, It's emotional labor: Examining surface acting
           and use-of-force with evidence from the US
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 13 November 2019Source: International Journal of Law, Crime and JusticeAuthor(s): Sharon H. Mastracci, Ian T. AdamsAbstractUsing data from one urban police department in the United States, this study gauges the effects of individual officer characteristics on use-of-force. Consistent with prior research, we find Emotional Exhaustion to be a negative correlate to use-of-force: Emotionally-exhausted officers avoid engaging with others. However, unlike previous research, we examine administrative data on actual use-of-force and include emotional labor into the model to reveal Surface Acting as a positive and significant correlate to use-of-force, while depersonalization has no effect. Other positive and statistically-significant correlates to use-of-force include number of primary calls and perceived need for use-of-force. In contrast, sex, years of experience, and prior military experience do not explain variations in use-of-force, nor does perceived organizational support or serving in a line officer capacity. We conclude with suggestions for further research, including examining use-of-force as a workplace stressor and the potential for emotional suppression to alter officer interpretations of suspect behavior.
