About this title


For Introduction to Policing, Law Enforcement, and specialization courses on policing at the freshman/sophomore undergraduate level. Written in a smooth style that promotes conceptual understanding and integration, this intriguing text on policing in America uses a "balance of forces" metaphor throughout to help assimilate discussions- centering material around a recurrent analytical theme that seeks to define police as a product of correlated social, historical, political, legal, individual, and organizational forces. Providing a detailed description of policing with probing analyses of current police and practice problems, it covers the complexity of policing in America, and offers a comprehensive survey of the different police and law enforcement agencies working in the country today.

From the Publisher:

This book has been written to help students develop an understanding of the different police and law enforcement agencies working in the United States today. Students will learn how these agencies developed, and examine current police practice and problems. It not only provides a detailed description of policing, but also offers students an analytic framework for understanding the police as a product of a balance of social, historical, political, legal, individual, and organizational forces.
