For courses in Policing or Law Enforcement.

Policing provides a complete and objective overview of policing in America, from its historical roots through the present day. Five distinct sections cover the foundations of policing, personnel issues, police work, legal issues, and the challenges of police discretion and behavior. This innovative new text includes the many pedagogical extras and an engaging four-color design typically associated with longer criminal justice texts, while maintaining a concise focus and brief format.
