Focusing throughout on the themes of problem solving and community/police collaboration and partnerships, this comprehensive text provides law enforcement students and police professionals with a career-focused, up-to-the-minute look at effective community policing. After presenting an historical perspective and the philosophy behind the movement, police veteran Linda Miller, renowned Criminal Justice educator Kären Hess and experienced author Christine Hess Orthmann turn to the practical strategies and essential skills needed to implement realistic, workable problem solving within communities today. This sixth edition retains these traditional strengths while adding "On the Beat" commentary by active police officer Kim Czapar in each chapter. This edition also features expanded coverage of cutting-edge issues in community policing such as community building and development; racial profiling and 9/11 effects; and the need for collaboration of law enforcement at all levels to combat the drug trade.
