Introduction to American Policing provides a solid stepping stone into the world of law enforcement in the United States. All the basics of policing are covered, including recruitment, integrity, and response to crime. The text is written in a clear lively style. In each chapter, career profiles offer a real-life angle on a variety of law enforcement professions. Other features focus on communication skills, technology updates, and encourage discussions about ethics issues. An appendix builds report-writing skills which are also reinforced with additional practice on the text's Web site. Another appendix provides a useful Spanish glossary. The text is a key tool to prepare students for immediate employment in the police force and to give them an understanding of legal issues.
