New forms of private influence are emerging in public policing across Canada. This includes private sponsorship of public police and donations to police foundations. This chapter explores key concepts in criminology and criminal justice studies and gauges their applicability to private sponsorship and donations in public policing. We compare definitions and applications of marketisation and corporatisation. Marketisation and corporatisation are often invoked in scholarly and even activist debates, but these terms are often conflated or erroneously used. There are subtle but important differences between marketisation and corporatisation that we explain here. We attempt to add clarity to these debates occurring within police studies as well as in criminology and criminal justice studies more broadly.
