Law Enforcement: An Insider's View addresses four major issues: (1) How the police function has evolved; (2) What it takes to become a full-fledged law enforcement officer; (3) On-the-street activities; and (4) Off-the-street issues. The author blends his classroom experience with his law enforcement training to provide the reader with a unique view of the streets through the eyes of a cop and the mind of a professor. This combination lends to an informed view of how things are supposed to be done in theory with how things really get done out in the field.

Traditional topics discussed:
agency organization, personnel recruitment and selection, pre-service training, criminal law, search and seizure, use of force, policy guidelines, stress.
Non-traditional topics discussed:
career preparation, training practices, personal adjustments to sworn status, choosing an appropriate course of action, how organizational mandates affect the job-holder.
