9780131137974: When Cultures Clash: Strategies for Strengthened Police-Community Relations

For courses in Police and Society, Multicultural Law Enforcement, Contemporary Issues in Policing and Police-Community Relations in CJ and Criminology departments.

This user-friendly guide to community-police relations examines a number of current and highly provocative law enforcement/citizen issues. Authored by a law enforcement professional and educator, (Mr. Carlson retired from the NY State Police as a uniform Captain, Assistant Director of Training), When Cultures Clash is well documented and includes examples and terminology from the “real world” of policing, clearly defining and discussing the cultural underpinnings of the law enforcement community and explaining many of the reasons police officers behave as they do. It gives students the opportunity to look into the world of the police officer and the oft-conflicting power and constraints of the police culture and the U.S. Constitution, outlining the rights of the citizen and police officers' responsibility to those whom they serve.

Review:

"Discussion questions to provoke further examination of key issues facing America." ? Ronald Swan, Lincoln College

From the Back Cover:

Described as a "must read" for police officers and prospective candidates for law enforcement, this book invites readers to step back and examine their views and attitudes from a different perspective. In the process of defining and discussing the cultural underpinnings of the criminal justice community, the author addresses topics of special importance including sources of tension in police-citizen interactions; the challenges of law enforcement in a democratic society; policing as a "noble" profession; and police-community relations in a "Post 9/11 " environment.
