Synopsis: Written by two professors with extensive real-life experience in all ranks and assignments of policing, this introductory text is ideal for those interested in learning who the police are, what they do, and how they do it. No other text can offer such a current insider's look at what policing means today. With a remarkable blend of solid theory and practice, INTRODUCTION TO POLICING features comprehensive coverage of all major topics, emphasizing today's most current technology, the newest statistical data, and important new directions such as homeland defense and community policing. A "must read" for anyone considering a career in law enforcement, this book gives students straightforward information about the many rewards, and the often intense stress, that are part of police work.
