9780132392570: Community Policing and Problem Solving: Strategies and Practices

For courses in Community Policing and Police-Community Relations.  

 

This book is about policing at its most important and challenging levels–in neighborhoods and in communities across the nation and abroad. Unique in perspective, its focus is on community policing and problem solving–and the processes that are being implemented under COPPS to control and prevent crime, disorder and fear. Extremely applied, this text focuses on daily processes and tactics and how and why agencies are revolutionizing their traditional philosophy and operations. This fifth edition provides updated information on crime in the United States, more emphasis on terrorism and homeland defense, and a new chapter on information technology.
