Policing is a clear, thought-provoking exploration of core concepts, the latest research and current events shaping criminal justice today. As part of the Justice Series, it's built to be affordable without sacrificing academic rigor, and it will move you beyond memorization to true understanding. The concise, conversational writing style keeps the content engaging while supporting your comprehension.
The 4th Edition has been extensively revised with the latest research and court cases. Changes appear throughout, including coverage of procedural justice, defunding the police and de-escalation. Updated case studies at the start and end of each chapter highlight the latest issues confronting US police forces.
