Overview

Policing in the 21st Century is the first book to attempt to correct the "linkage blindness" in the criminal justice system - the lack of information sharing between various law enforcement jurisdictions as well as the rest of the criminal justice system. This exciting new book highlights the important connections between theory and practice with extended discussions devoted to problem-solving and crime mapping applications.

The authors offer a fresh, new approach to presenting introductory law enforcement material that is both practical for the future law enforcement officer and intellectually rewarding for the reader entering a whole new field of study. Material is organized in a developmental framework, beginning with a discussion of law enforcement's place within the criminal justice system and a discussion of the origins of policing; the reader is then introduced to the traditional model of policing and the core aspects of the work-organizational structure and units, field operations, and investigations. Following this discussion of the field and its development, the final section emphasizes the theory and practice of proactive policing models - bridging the gap between theory, research, and practice.

Reviewers have praised the practical applications throughout this new text. One writes, "I cannot emphasize enough the need for practical application and case examples. I am most impressed by this aspect of the text."
