Abstract: The purpose of this chapter is to describe the nature of policing in rural Canada and the USA. We examine the social organisation of policing and how broader social structural issues reflect the rural realities of policing in Canada and the USA. We conclude with recommendations for more comparative and critical scholarship on police studies in the rural context.
