Overview

This definitive text provides a modern-day perspective on the evolving partnership between police and citizens in solving community problems.
• Each chapter contains learning objectives, key terms, and discussion questions that encourage comprehension
• Video and Internet links provide additional coverage of topics discussed throughout the text.
• Includes a Ten Principles of Community Policing addendum. Community policing is a philosophy and organizational strategy that expands the traditional police mandate of fighting crime to include forming partnerships with citizenry and endorsing mutual support and participation. Community Policing: A Contemporary Perspective introduces students to this progressive approach, and has now been revised throughout to include the most current developments in the field such as how the current climate of suspicion associated with terrorism threats affects the trust so necessary for community policing, and how the newest technologies can be harnessed to facilitate police interactions with citizens. Additionally, the text now explores the fragmentation of authority and emphasizes the importance of partnerships among the numerous law enforcement agencies, government agencies, and private social service agencies.
