Abstract

BURGER, Brian  and  MULLER, Julian. A theological reflection on the stories of police officers working under a new constitution. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2009, vol.65, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0259-9422.

Fighting crime in the new South Africa has taken on new challenges under a new constitution. Using a narrative approach to research, the stories of police officers were listened to and reflected upon theologically. This process was carried out within a postfoundationalist and social constructionist paradigm that enabled further dialogue with other disciplines, seeking common ground as well as points of difference.

Keywords : police officers; constitution; crime fighting; practical theology; theology and the community.
