Criticisms of how police exercise their authority are neither new nor uncommon. Police officers have considerable power, and they often must draw on that power in complex and pressing circumstances. This collection of essays by fifteen leading specialists in ethics and criminal justice examines the nature of police discretion and its many varieties. The essays explore the kinds of judgment calls police officers frequently must make: When should they get involved? Whom should they watch? What constitutes a "disturbance of the peace"? What resources should be devoted to a situation? Does social welfare take precedence over law enforcement? Under what conditions, if any, may police officers engage in selective enforcement of the law? Each essay or pair of essays is followed by a response, making Handled with Discretion an excellent text for stimulating discussion in the classroom. Contributors:Arthur Isak Applbaum, Howard Cohen, Michael Davis, James J. Fyfe, Diana Gordon, Vidar Halvorsen, William C. Heffernan, Robert Jackall, John Kleining, Candace McCoy, Howard McGary, Joan McGregor, John Pittman, Jeffery Reiman, David Wasserman.
