Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Policing Today provides a comprehensive and contemporary overview of policing in America—from its historical roots through the present day. Six distinct sections cover the foundations of policing, personnel issues, police work, legal issues and more! Chapter opening stories feature high-profile cases and include questions for critical thinking. Ethical dilemma boxes and “Does it Work?” features capture much of what is faced by law enforcement today. Offering a four-color format and feature-rich presentation, this book presents the reality of police work in ways that will captivate students and help prepare them for the field.

Review:

Comprehensive, contemporary, and cutting-edge, Policing Today presents students with an introduction to policing that balances theory, practice, and research.

 

The book’s three primary features are designed to encourage students to challenge their assumptions and think critically about the role of law enforcement in the .United States. 

  • Chapter opening “Think About It” case studies provide a real-world context and thought-provoking questions for students to consider as they read each chapter.
  • “You Decide” scenarios challenge students to make the same types of critical and ethical decisions that law enforcement professionals face every day.
  • “Does It Work?” boxes present evidence-based critiques of common policing practices to show what the research says works and what does not work.
