Policing Today provides a comprehensive and contemporary overview of policing in America—from its historical roots through the present day. Six distinct sections cover the foundations of policing, personnel issues, police work, legal issues and more! Chapter opening stories feature high-profile cases and include questions for critical thinking. Ethical dilemma boxes and “Does it Work?” features capture much of what is faced by law enforcement today. Offering a four-color format and feature-rich presentation, this book presents the reality of police work in ways that will captivate students and help prepare them for the field.
