An engaging and practical book that you will actually want to read
Featuring a diverse range of officers in a variety of situations, sometimes controversial, Policing: The Essentials introduces you to the core concepts of policing by examining the constantly changing role and practices used by police in today's society. Authors Carol A. Archbold, Carol M. Huynh, and Thomas Mrozla connect key concepts to pressing issues such as defunding the police, the impact of the media on policing in the United States, racial profiling, police-invoked shootings, and police misconduct. With a unique chapter on police effectiveness and community policing, as well as an emphasis on diversity throughout the text, including racially diverse officers, LGBTQ, and female officers, you will develop a practical understanding of modern policing from which you can continue to build from as you pursue a degree.
