Policing America, 7e offers a problem-solving approach that emphasizes what is actually working in the field. Based on the author’s over thirty years of practical policing and academic experience, the book covers policing topics and tactics–including history, patrol, police subculture, investigation, organization and administration, community policing, the rule of law, accountability, civil liability and technologies. Organized so as to flow smoothly for the instructor and student, this edition now features a new chapter on personnel issues, a major revision of the futures chapter, and new Learn by Doing scenarios and Career Profiles that provide a penetrating view of one of the most difficult and challenging occupations in America: policing.
