Police & Society offers an in-depth and analytical look at the process of policing, from police behavior and organization to operations and historical perspectives. Focusing on the relationship between the police and the community and how it has changed throughout the years, the authors explore the most important theoretical foundations and incisive research on contemporary policing and show how that research is put into practice. Now in its sixth edition, this unique text incorporates expanded coverage of police technology, homeland security, privacy and surveillance, immigration, and evidence-based practices and includes the most current scholarship. A new companion website (www.oup.com/us/roberg) features an online student study guide, animated flashcards, and self-quizzes.

Review:


"Police & Society is a very well organized, concisely written, and well informed text that meshes professional perspectives from the field with scholarly academic research. The text is flexible in that it can be utilized by both criminal justice and non-criminal justice majors. Professors would be challenged to find a text that synthesizes a similar amount of information and research as relevant to the policing field as this one."--Jeremy G. Carter, IUPUI


"An excellent presentation of policing research that does not lose sight of the realities of policing in modern America."--Willard M. Oliver, Sam Houston State University
