About the Book

Contemporary Issues in Policing: Foundational Readings provides students with insights into modern challenges and opportunities within law enforcement and policing.

The first reading in the collection introduces students to the function of the police, the various levels of law enforcement, and the evolution of American policing. Additional readings explore the demographic make-up of America's law enforcement agencies; the difficulties facing the field with regard to recruiting, hiring, and retaining officers with minority status; how police departments select, train, and supervise their officers; and various models of police behavior.

Students read about the controversy surrounding the police use of discretion, the complex issue of police use of force, the various types of misconduct and corruption that can occur in the field of policing, and the importance of investigating civilian complaints against the police. The final reading underscores the importance of change in the field of policing. Throughout, pre- and post-reading questions engage students and encourage critical thinking.

A critical resource for today's students, Contemporary Issues in Policing is an ideal resource for courses in law enforcement and policing.
