Overview

In an ever changing complex world, law enforcement must readily adapt to fight criminals/terrorists. In this work, Eterno and Das bring experts from all over the globe to explain policing in a way that only they can do. These experts are well-versed in law enforcement methods and operations in their respective countries. Nearly every part of the globe is represented in a cornucopia of nations: Australia, Brazil, China, India, Nigeria, Russia, and the United States. Many of the contributors are world renowned scholars with practical policing experience. Each chapter brings a unique viewpoint explaining the country's police from the perspective of that country's culture. The focus of the book is on transnational crime and terrorism; however, each chapter provides a basic understanding of policing in that nation. Additionally, a chapter on current legal practices throughout the world develops a global understanding of the difficulties faced by law enforcement. To combat crime and terrorism on a global scale requires an understanding of other nations: their cultures, their laws, their viewpoints. This book, written by indigenous authors, provides unique insights into the countries being examined. The wide range of countries combined with native experts make this book a necessary first step toward properly handling international crime and terrorism.
