This comprehensive, accurate, and timely account of police violence provides readers with a complete understanding of the concept and all that it entails—covering its history to future directions, and ten different areas of police violence. Each chapter in the reader addresses police violence as it is used by and against officers, and all highly competent contributing authors (including both practitioners and academics) have a strong background in the various areas. Chapter topics examine the research surrounding violent acts, the reasons officers feel justified in using excessive force, an account of situational factors affecting an officer's likelihood to use or be the victim of violence, measurements of deadly force, training issues, the importance of officer pursuits, violence and the community policing philosophy, and international rates of violent police-citizen encounters and the differences between countries. For use in the police academy—and by the ACLU, citizen action groups, and civilian review boards.
