9780023974205: The Police and the Community

This leading book presents a comprehensive introduction to community policing—one of the most significant recent trends in policing, and related topics which are central to the effective management of the police community relationship. It integrates contemporary discussions of the community policing/problem solving concepts with systematic issues, at the same time covering the important transition from traditional practices in police-community relations to the new programs of community policing. Comprehensive coverage includes racial profiling, an original discussion of new and emerging technologies (e-policing), and an updated treatment of ethics and integrity issues. For law enforcement personnel.

From the Publisher:

There's little question that community policing represents one of the most significant trends in policing in recent years. And no text is better equipped to cover that topic than Radelet and Carter's. As the most established and up-to-date work in its field, this leading text not only provides the first truly authoritative treatment of community policing, it also offers the only coverage of the transition to this new approach from the traditional practices in police-community relations. This edition has been streamlined to focus more closely on policing issues by omitting, for example, the chapter on courts and corrections.

From the Back Cover:

The seventh edition of The Police and the Community continues the long-standing tradition of this well-established book by providing a solid foundation of history in the police-community relationship integrated with the most contemporary issues and trends. The author, who has worked extensively with police agencies around the world, brings a unique combination of theory, research, and policy to the issues discussed. A unique aspect of this book is that it goes beyond community policing and examines an array of important issues which are inextricably related to the provision of police service and the general police-community relationship. The book is intended for researchers, students, and practitioners who seek a broad and thoughtful approach in the police-community relationship.

New to the Seventh Edition:
  • A complete discussion of the COMPSTAT process, presented in a broader context of "deployment by analysis," including crime mapping and crime analysis, and the role these concepts play in community policing.
  • A detailed examination of "racial profiling," including detailed discussion of its history, the issues, and remedies.
  • A unique discussion of what the author calls "e-Policing" which explores both "client" and "enterprise" computing as they relate to police information management, community policing, and the provision of value-added service to the community.
  • A complete update of research and federal initiatives, including the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, as they relate to community policing and the police-community relationship.
  • An updated Instructor's Manual which includes a test question bank.
