Summary

Get an exclusive insider?s look at the roles, rewards, and stresses of policing and law enforcement! Now in its 5th edition, An Introduction to Policing has the same recipe for success as its previous editions: co-authors with extensive real-life experience in all ranks and assignments of policing, a solid blend of practical information and theory that covers who the police are, what they do, and how they do it, and an emphasis on current issues and topics. Unique to this edition is the expanded coverage of the very latest advances in technology, from mobile policing technology to video camera traffic enforcement and computer and digital forensics. The book has also been updated to cover campus law enforcement, law enforcement and illegal immigration, one-officer vs. two-officer patrol cars, and Reverse 911. Using extensively updated research and statistics throughout, this book is a "must read" for anyone considering a career in law enforcement.
