Description

by Larry K. Gaines (Author), Victor E. Kappeler (Author).

by Larry K. ISBN-13: 978-1138289024. Why is ISBN important? ISBN. The 13-digit and 10-digit formats both work.

This book contains sentences that are incomplete (as in no beginning or completely lacking an ending), phrasing that makes no sense, and random diatribes on completely irrelevant issues. Ask your professor to recommend another book to the college you attend, or drop the class that requires you read this book, because it's too painful for words, and it's not worth the paper it's printed on.

De-policing - is a law enforcement strategy in which police avoid accusations of racial profiling by ignoring .

De-policing - is a law enforcement strategy in which police avoid accusations of racial profiling by ignoring traffic violations and other petty crimes committed by members of visible minorities. 1 In a sense de policing is the opposite of racial profiling.

This comprehensive text provides an overview of law enforcement topics, integrating major empirical findings and theory-based research findings in the field with a thorough analysis of contemporary policing problems.

The issues-oriented discussion focuses on critical concerns facing American police, including personnel systems, organization and management, operations, discretion, use of force, culture and behavior, ethics and deviance, civil liability and police-community relations. A critical assessment of police history and the role politics played in the development of American police institutions is offered. Globalization, terrorism and homeland security are addressed.

Although I was misled in the edition of the book. I received it in a timely fashion. I can blame myself for not checking further in the edition. Will not order unless there is a picture provided (lol). Other than my own blames, great Service. Arrived in timely fashion. Would do business again. Thanks!!!

If you are required to buy this book for a college course all I can do is offer my sympathy. If you are looking for a good overview of current methods and styles of policing in America, find an alternative. This book is so poorly written and edited that I don't understand how it could have been published, let alone be in its fifth edition. This book contains sentences that are incomplete (as in no beginning or completely lacking an ending), phrasing that makes no sense, and random diatribes on completely irrelevant issues. Ask your professor to recommend another book to the college you attend, or drop the class that requires you read this book, because it's too painful for words, and it's not worth the paper it's printed on.

After reading three of Gaines books I have came to the conclusion that I am not a big fan of his writing. I am sure that he knows his information, however the way he writes is dull.
