9780130270160: Policing and Misconduct

Original works by nationally and internationally recognized practitioners and academicians make up a comprehensive and up-to-date overview addressing a variety of relevant issues and acts of police misconduct. The historical and theoretical frameworks found in this collection focuses on a range of issues related to the definition, description, prevention, and control of acts of police deviance. Contemporary control strategies—such as early warning systems, drug testing technologies, and community police issues are explored at length. Other chapter topics deal with drug related police corruption, excessive force, police sexual violence, and police misconduct and female officers. A useful reference for supervisory personnel.

From the Back Cover:

Although considered the "gatekeepers" of our society and expected to meet or exceed high moral standards, today's police officer is only human and is prone to error. Often these errors are viewed as misconduct. Policing and Misconduct takes a closer look at the phenomenon of police misconduct through the exploration of several facets.

In Policing and Misconduct, Dr. Kim Lersch and other authors examine police misconduct beginning with a look at what is ethical behavior, a historical review through possible warning systems for police management. Furthermore, this book does something that is rare, it offers an examination of misconduct among women police officers.

Policing and Misconduct is an edited work that provides a variety of perspectives and views into differing aspects of police misconduct. Unlike solo authored texts, this book offers the views and insights of several writers who have many years of police and research experience in police misconduct. In light of media heavy incidents as Louima and Diallo, this book is very timely and gives students and practitioners much food for thought.
