Répondre aux mobilisations sociales. Les système policier italien en transition

Abstract : ANSWERING SOCIAL PROTESTS. ITALIAN POLICING IN TRANSITION. This article aims to describe and explain some developments the police system in Italy has experienced for fifteen years. Two main transformations of policing - the ‘proximity' reform and the contemporary shift of the tasks of municipal police forces to the territorial control - seem to be tightly connected with the gradual politicization of the "security issue" during the 1990s. On the one hand, safety is the target of strongly mediatised local mobilizations and becomes a major electoral issue, both at the local and national levels. On the other hand, the distribution of security powers between central government and localities has been more and more at stake in the debate for a federalist reform of the state. The article shows how these local and national dynamics push the two different police forces to change in a remarkably similar and crossed way.
