This classic field observation study covers wide range of topics. The author illuminates the contradiction between the formal written rules, interpretations, and perceived organizational needs by which police forces are supposed to operate, and the continuing drama of human personalities and aspirations that also contribute to the administration of criminal justice in America. This timely new edition contains a new Epilogue, "The Challenge of Crime in the 1990s," which brings the "Westville" police department and its problems up-to-date, in the context of issues faced by police and their departments across the nation.
