This book provides readers with a comprehensive view of the often obscure world of policing, with in-depth coverage of today's major topics. It explores the methods and issues, personality and problems, and attitudes and beliefs of those persons who enforce federal, state, and local laws. Chapter topics include the rights of police officers, women and minorities in policing, private policing, unionization, contract and consolidated policing, civilianization, accreditation, higher education, and stress. A “real-world” focus gives insight to one of the most difficult and challenging occupations in America. Career overviews highlight information on the various fields of police work for those considering making it their future. Given their prominence and authority in our society, “consumers” of police services will also find this a provocative read.
