Drawn from the most important articles in Police Practice and Research, Contemporary Issues in Law Enforcement and Policing focuses on the most common issues affecting todayâ€™s officers. Enhanced with an introduction and conclusion to present and weigh the arguments and consider the pragmatic aspects and challenges posed, the articles are written by academics and practicing police officers from four countries to provide a balanced, international point of view.
Assessing the driving forces behind contemporary policing, this bookâ€”
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Addresses day-to-day policing and the stress found in both the daily grind and the division and stigmatization of certain branches of the force
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Considers ethics, corruption, and the dangers of misplaced loyalties, highlighting Australian strategies to prevent misconduct
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Provides a typology of terrorism based on scope and justification and discusses appropriate counterterrorism measures, as well as the impact on other policing priorities
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Introduces a temporal component to the traditional spatial emphasis of crime mapping supported by a Madrid case study and its revealing failures
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Discusses restorative policing as a fundamental shift in intervention objectives, from punishment or treatment to an emphasis on repairing harm
An objective look at todayâ€™s trends, this book presents the most pertinent and talked-about issues in modern policing and provides perspective and direction for the future.
