Overview

COMMUNITY POLICING AND PROBLEM SOLVING: STRATEGIES AND PRACTICES, 6/e is about policing at its most important and challenging levels–in neighborhoods and communities across the nation and abroad.

Extremely applied, this text focuses on daily processes and tactics and how and why agencies are revolutionizing their traditional philosophy and operations. This sixth edition provides the latest on policing in an information age, how the economy is impacting policing practices and new information concerning COPPs initiatives across the United States.
