Service or Violence? Or A Violent Service : A fieldwork based study on the change in attitudes towards the use of force within the South African Police Service analysed using the community concept
This paper concerns the changes in attitudes towards the use of force within the South African police force after democratisation. The paper debates the current approaches towards the analysis of violence and a new theory on community and conflict management is developed. This new theory aims to provide a new framework for analysing the use of violence. The theory is then applied on a fieldwork conducted at a local police station in Cape Town, South Africa.
