dc.description.abstract This Thesis offers an analysis of the effects of normalized police militarization in the context of the post 9/11 United States. It discusses the differences between what is defined as traditional militarization and police militarization, the difficulties in how the two processes are discussed, and the modes of militarization and their effects, with specific attention to their contributions to the normalization of violence in American society. Suggestions of how these effects impact the construction of group and individual identity among police officers are offered in consideration for further research into how these effects impact identity construction among civilian community members within which police serve. en_US
