Summary

------- EXAM COPY EDITION ------- Think Link! Linking Law Enforcement Agencies Law Enforcement in the 21st Century is the first book to examine the ";linkage blindness"; in the criminal justice system-the lack of information sharing among various law enforcement jurisdictions, as well as the rest of the criminal justice system. Linking Theory to Practice This exciting new book highlights the important connections between theory and practice with extended discussions devoted to problem-solving and crime mapping applications. Linking the Student to Proactive Policing Models The text constantly engages the reader in thinking critically about the role of law enforcement within changing global contexts, and the extent to which public security interests should and/or do outweigh the personal liberties we value so strongly as a society. The authors offer a fresh, new approach to presenting introductory law enforcement material that is both practical for the future law enforcement officer and intellectually rewarding for the reader entering a whole new field of study. Rather than the standard presentation of the material, this text is organized in a developmental framework: bull; bull;Part I introduces readers to law enforcement's place within the criminal justice system, the origins of policing as a profession, and traditional models of policing. bull;Part II covers core aspects of police work, such as organizational structure and units, field operations, and investigations. bull;Part III discusses major challenges in policing, including discussions of corruption and use of force, discretion, and multicultural policing. bull;Part IV includes an expansive overview of community policing and important new technological applications that are currently transforming the nature of law enforcement. The authors then look ahead to proactive strategy development in a practical way with specific case examples, as well as theoretical insights, woven throughout.
