very useful March 12, 2011

This textbook is an important contribution to policing at multiple levels. It discusses ethnic and minority groups in a respectful manner, attempting to avoid stereotypes. It provides the police officer with insight into and strategies for policing a multicultural society. I got exactly what I paid for. I saved $60 for this textbook that I need for my college course in Criminal Justice. At this point in my life, there are way too many things that I have to spend my money on other than books. This is a great seller.
