About this book

This book offers a comparison of the differences between the ‘public’ and ‘private’ spheres, and questions the need for law enforcement to intrude upon both.  Beginning with the origins of the concept of privacy, before addressing more current thinking, the authors examine the notion of privacy and policing, using both direct (e.g. 'stop and search' methods) and technological interventions (e.g. telephone interceptions and Automatic Number Plate Recognition cameras), privacy in the space of the court, looking at what restrictions are placed on press reporting, as well as considering whether the open court ensures fair trials. Particular forms of offending and privacy are also considered: anonymity for sexual offence defendants, for example, or weighing the terrorist’s right to privacy against the safety and security of the general public. A timely discussion into the right to privacy in prison and during community sentences is also included, and Marshall and Thomas offer convin

cing analysis on the importance of rehabilitation, giving consideration to police registers and the storage and maintenance of criminal records by the police and their possible future use. A diverse investigation into the many facets of privacy, this volume will hold broad appeal for scholars and students of terrorism, security, and human rights.

Reviews

“A thorough examination of the interaction between the criminal justice system and privacy. The well-organised account provides a timely body of information for students of the police, the courts, prisons and state surveillance practices.” (David Vincent, Visiting Fellow, Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities, Cambridge University, UK; Emeritus Professor of Social History, The Open University, UK)

“This book provides an insightful examination of the stages in the UK criminal justice system that an alleged adult offender may go through when they have been suspected of committing a criminal act. In doing so, the authors ask very pertinent critical questions about the nature, extent and boundaries of privacy in the context of criminal justice. This will be a useful book for academics, students, researchers and practitioners who wish to gain an understanding of the ways that a person’s privacy may be encroached and for some deemed to have been invaded in the context of criminal justice. A timely and much needed book.” (Sarah Kingston, Senior Lecturer in Criminology, School of Law, Lancaster University, UK)
