What is included with this book?


Policing in an Era of Homeland Security--now fully updated at a student-friendly price--offers a fuller understanding of how the concept of Homeland Security developed, what it means for the police, and where within the scope of a national Homeland Security framework the police fit.

The first part of the book provides historical context about the era of policing since the 9/11 attacks, the creation of the Department of Homeland Security, and the expansive scope of the DHS. The second part of the book reviews the strategy of homeland security as it relates to state and local
policing; the operational level concepts as they apply to policing and homeland security; and the tactical level methods and training necessary for police to achieve the goals and objectives of homeland security. Policing in an Era of Homeland Security offers coverage of first responder content,
including disaster preparedness and incident command system information, and includes current events and policy initiatives in homeland security that relate to policing. This up-to-date, cutting-edge resource is designed to be used in a variety of policing related courses, including community
policing, contemporary policing, advanced policing, intelligence-led policing, and homeland security policing, and as a supplement in homeland security and terrorism courses.
