‘Police are good for some people, but not for us’: Community perspectives on young people, policing and belonging in Greater Dandenong and Casey

Research output: Book/ReportReports

Abstract

This report presents findings from a qualitative study with young people from refugee and migrant
backgrounds living in the Greater Dandenong and Casey area about the impact of police encounters
on their sense of belonging. The report focuses solely on experiences of belonging and non-belonging
as reported by community members. A subsequent report will include material from interviews with
Victoria Police members. It will analyse policing practice in more depth, identifying systemic factors
that shape interactions between police and these communities.
