Now in a new edition, Police & Society offers a descriptive and analytical look at the process of policing, from police behavior and organization to operations and historical perspectives. With an emphasis on the relationship between the police and the community and how this relationship has changed through the years, coauthors Roy Roberg, Kenneth Novak, and Gary Cordner explore the most important theoretical foundations and incisive research on contemporary policing practices.
To draw students into this complex subject, the authors provide many fascinating examples of policing at work: Inside Policing boxes address real-world police issues and operations and also offer biographical sketches of important police leaders. Voices From the Field boxes feature insights from nationally recognized police executives who discuss current policing practices in a lively Q&A format.
Revised throughout, the fourth edition incorporates such timely new topics as media relations, intelligence-led policing, and changes in CompStat procedures. The authors also address the impact of society's evolution on current policing practices, paying special attention to the challenges of community policing and policing in the post-9/11 era. The book's rich pedagogical features include an expanded glossary, which provides clear definitions of key terms. An Interactive Student Study Guide CD is packaged with the text, and an Instructor's Manual is also available.
An essential resource for policing in the twenty-first century, Police & Society, Fourth Edition, provides a dynamic introduction to this compelling field.
