The intention of this chapter is to discuss the issue of policing and social cohesion by examining the relationship between Lebanese-Australian youth in western Sydney and the New South Wales police. Nationally, there is no doubt that relations between the police and ethnic minority youth continue to be fraught with difficulties, tensions and problems, as well as important positive policing developments. But the major flashpoint for conflict today is Sydney. Why this is so and what can be done to remedy the situation is the focus of this chapter.
