This instructor and student-friendly, engaging text covers the most current policing topics and tactics.

 

Policing America: Challenges and Best Practices, 8e, offers a problem-solving approach that emphasizes what is actually working in the field. Based on the author’s thirty-plus years of practical policing and academic experience, this eighth edition continues to be set apart by its traditional, applied, “what works” theme. That, coupled with comprehensive updates throughout and the minor restructuring of this edition, provide an approach not otherwise found on the market. Emphases are on topics of major, national importance and interest, such as terrorism, personnel issues, community policing, investigations, rule of law, accountability (ethics, liability), patrol, and technologies. Organized to flow smoothly for the instructor and student, this edition continues to provide a penetrating view of one of the most difficult and challenging occupations in America: policing!
