Policing Todayprovides 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.
