Visual Criminology

Bill McClanahan

Policy Press

This final thematic chapter traces the outlines of a theoretical visual criminology of police and police power. Describing the role of police images in media and visual culture, the chapter takes up body-worn cameras, police mugshots, and the always-lurking cultural figures of police and police violence. The chapter concludes with some notes on the ways that the image and the power of the visual have also been turned against police, and the ways that an imaginary of police abolition might be nurtured through visual challenges to police power.
