Real-life stories test students’ abilities to problem solve! Interactive and stimulating, realistic and accurate, versatile and practical—these are some of the adjectives readers applied to the successful previous editions of Human Relations and Police Work. The Fourth Edition of this popular casebook continues to cover a broad range of police and law enforcement encounters and decision-making problems as it helps students identify more closely with these important facets of the criminal justice experience. Cases have been updated to reflect current issues that face today’s law enforcement officials. These issues include sexual harassment, minority recruitment, the homeless, hate crimes, and gay rights. Forty-nine thought-provoking scenarios allow readers to test how they would cope with each situation using their own methods and applying abstract concepts.
