Abstract

This chapter investigates the idea of ubiquity and the paradigm of perpetual contact by investigating operational policing. A practice-based lens is concerned with the everyday use of technologies and generally subscribes to ethnographic methods. This lens is derived from the theory of structuration and sees technology and its users as co-constituting, in that technological use cannot be stabilized but is emergent in time, and the structures of technology emerge only through continuous and situated use (Orlikowski, 2000).
