About this item

This textbook introduces policing in the US and the legal and moral relationship between individuals and police in a free society. It explains policing through the experiences of officers and connects them to theories from scholarly research, detailing aspects of the criminal justice system, criminology, and law enforcement. This includes discussion of the history of policing, community policing, change in policing, local law enforcement, campus police, privatization, tribal law enforcement, and federal enforcement agencies; police organizations, management, and officers; aspects of police work, such as patrol and crime scene investigation; and current aspects related to police officer subculture and stress. In full color, this edition has new case studies on current topics like the Michael Brown case and the Black Lives Matter movement; two new chapters on public health and terrorism policies; new discussions of recent events, such as police under unprovoked attacks, the police use of drones, transfer of deadly pathogens among officers, and human trafficking; and updated Ripped from the Headlines case studies.
