This groundbreaking new text by Michael Rowe is the first genuinely introductory, comprehensive textbook on policing. Introduction to Policing has been carefully developed to incorporate all the key areas of a policing course, from the history of the police and the legal framework, to current debates around issues such as diversity, surveillance, and the impact of the media. The book highlights the way in which theory applies to practice at every step.
