From the Publisher:

Substantive -- yet accessible -- this overview of police community relations focuses on the importance of, and strategies for, positive police community interaction in dealing with the many turbulent issues which affect crime control in America.

From the Back Cover:

The sixth edition of Police-Community Relations and the Administration of Justice continues the theme set in the first edition: citizen participation is critical to the effectiveness of the criminal justice system. This is especially true for the police. The police have a unique responsibility to encourage and facilitate citizen participation. This book addresses the internal and external communities served by the police and discusses past, present, and future practices that can create and sustain meaningful and successful police-community relations. Fully updated and revised, this sixth edition features the following:

  • A new chapter on police-community relations in the new millennium, including the effects of outside community events on police-community relations
  • A discussion of racially biased policing, which goes beyond racial profiling
  • A discussion of the riots in Seattle in 1999 and in Cincinnati in 2001 and their implications for police-community relations
  • An updated discussion of the many external communities of the police
  • A discussion of police attempts to deal with ethnic diversity
  • New examples of police community programs throughout the United States
