Description

For courses in Introduction to Policing or General Policing or as a supplemental text for Community Policing or Police Administration.

Taking a new direction and emphasis, this edition of Policing America offers a problem-solving approach and emphasizes what is actually working in the field. Based on the author’s over thirty five years of experience, the book offers complete coverage of traditional policing topics, a concise view of the reorganized federal law enforcement system, and coverage of topics such as homeland security, community policing, investigations, accountability, patrol and technologies. This edition features two new problem-solving chapters, an new problem-solving appendix and over thirty case-study exhibits that reinforce what works to attack such problems as terrorism, gangs, and crimes involving drugs, hate, and youth.
