Contents

With barely a day passing between tragic terrorist atrocities, and the blood-saturated media coverage that flows from them, it's easy to form the impression that we live in very insecure times. With this month's loose theme of 'security and policing', you will encounter several pieces that consider countermeasures, and whether they genuinely make us feel safer.

Our cover feature (p.682) looks at surveillance, and argues that psychologists have been slow to cast their own watchful eyes over the implications of increased levels. A relative lack of psychological inquiry is also a theme of Peter Squire's consideration of police armed response (p.658). Other articles look at those putting psychological theory and research to practice in areas such as cybersecurity and conflict resolution.

Often when we publish such a collection, I receive emails saying 'I work in this area, I wish you had asked me'. Well, unlike the UK's CCTV system, I can't possibly have eyes everywhere... please don't wait to be asked, get in touch now!
