Written by two professors with extensive real-life experience in all ranks and assignments of policing, this introductory text is ideal for those interested in learning who the police are, what they do, and how they do it.

A "must read" for anyone considering a career in law enforcement, this book gives students straightforward information about the many rewards, and the often intense stress, that are part of police work.
