Summary
Explains how community and night patrols have their roots in pre-invasion Aboriginal cultural and social structures; discusses the patrols rely on a functional level of Aboriginal cultural and family law; outlines the differences in the ways that men and women will undertake their roles as patrollers; co-option of such programs by government (with funding accountability expectations) makes the patrol no long community owned, but just community based, and less effective - e.g. preventing the government-funded vehicle to be able to leave a settlement to look for a lost person; discusses how the Intervention and the new Northern Territory shires have removed the last vestiges of Aboriginal self-determination in the Northern Territory
