For courses in Policing and Law Enforcement.

Policing: A Modular Approach provides a refreshing break from traditional policing textbooks. Created to encourage reader comprehension, the text uses a modular format that divides chapters into easily-digestible sections. An emphasis on the fundamentals of policing, combined with case studies and recent research-based findings, gives readers objective and thorough coverage of policing and police work. The text provides a strong balance between the practical and theoretical aspects of police work and is a reader-friendly, learning-focused, research-based examination of the most significant and pressing issues faced by today’s police departments and officers.
