What is included with this book?
Written by an experienced former police officer, Paradoxes of Police Work, 2nd edition leads the reader through the policies and inherent contradictions of law enforcement as described with real cop experiences and realities. In "tell it like it is" fashion, this book offers examples of real-life situations that occur constantly in the day-to-day operations of "routine" patrol and offers glimpses into the frustrations and stresses of law enforcement careers. This book tackles controversial subjects that many academic texts and field books too often ignore. But these are important issues and confronting them can lead to a better understanding of the profession, which can in turn create better professionals. Paradoxes of Police Work, 2nd edition provides thought-provoking and insightful topic coverage that clarifies the paradoxes in modern police work.
