About this item

This text is suitable for all introductory or general policing courses (both undergraduate and graduate levels) or as a supplemental text for community policing or police administration courses.

 

Revel™ is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, Revel replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, Revel is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience–for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.

A practical, applied approach to “what works” in policing

Based on the author’s thirty-plus years of policing and academic experience, Revel for Policing America: Challenges and Best Practices, Ninth Edition, offers a problem-solving approach that emphasizes what is actually working in the field. Throughout the book, dozens of current exhibits, additional cases studies, Career Profiles, and real-world problem-solving examples bring the “what works” theme alive for the reader. Each chapter encourages readers to think critically with Learn by Doing sections. Organized to flow smoothly for the instructor and student, this edition continues to provide a penetrating view of one of the most difficult and demanding occupations in America: policing!

 

The Ninth Edition addresses head-on the most challenging aspects of policing in our age. New emphases include methods of policing a diverse society—particularly disenfranchised minorities in the “post-Ferguson” era and a call for re-examination of police methods—as well as the fight against terrorism and applications of new information technologies. In addition, chapters examine major issues and formidable crime problems, crime prevention, changing agency culture, evaluating problem-solving initiatives, cyberbullying and cybercrime, special populations, and the future of policing. 

NOTE: Revel is a fully digital delivery of Pearson content. This ISBN is for the standalone Revel access card. In addition to this access card, you will need a course invite link, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Revel.
