Overview

Comprehensive, contemporary, and cutting-edge, Policing Today presents students with an introduction to policing that balances theory, practice, and research.

The book’s three primary features are designed to encourage students to challenge their assumptions and think critically about the role of law enforcement in the .United States.

  • Chapter opening “Think About It” case studies provide a real-world context and thought-provoking questions for students to consider as they read each chapter.
  • “You Decide” scenarios challenge students to make the same types of critical and ethical decisions that law enforcement professionals face every day.
  • “Does It Work?” boxes present evidence-based critiques of common policing practices to show what the research says works and what does not work.
