9780323340496: Community Policing: A Contemporary Perspective

Community policing is a philosophy and organizational strategy that expands the traditional police mandate of fighting crime to include forming partnerships with citizenry that endorse mutual support and participation. The first textbook of its kind, Community Policing: A Contemporary Perspective delineates this progressive approach, combining the accrued wisdom and experience of its established authors with the latest research-based insights to help students apply what is on the page to the world beyond.

This seventh edition extends the road map presented by Robert Trojanowicz, the father of community policing, and brings it into contemporary focus. The text has been revised throughout to include the most current developments in the field, including "Spotlight on Community Policing Practice" features that focus on real-life community policing programs in various cities as well as problem-solving case studies. Also assisting the reader in understanding the material are Learning Objectives, Key Terms, and Discussion Questions, in addition to numerous links to resources outside the text. A glossary and an appendix, "The Ten Principles of Community Policing," further enhance learning of the material.

Review:

Whether you are a professor, student or long time practitioner, you will find this book to contain a comprehensive and thought provoking overview of community policing. It provides a perfect blend of factual historic considerations and implementation guidelines and should be required reading for everyone in the criminal justice field.

- Commander Ken Armstrong, Lexington Division of Police (KY)

The strength of this text is that it thoroughly covers the philosophy of community policing and then explains how specific strategies and tactics fit within that philosophy. Only by understanding that link can students discern the difference between practices that truly are community policing and those that are not.

-Curtis G. Hayes, Criminal Justice, Western New Mexico University

I've used this textbook for my community policing courses for the past several years starting with the 5th edition. Nicely written, easy for criminal justice or non-criminal justice students to follow. Excellent resource that has been updated nicely. I look forward to using the 7th edition.

-Tim Gleason, Criminal Justice, University of Illinois, Springfield
