Steven M. Cox , William P. McCamey, Gene L. Scaramella, Introduction to Policing, Second Edition

An informative and entertaining text that prepares readers for the unique challenges of 21st-century policing

Focusing on the thought-provoking, contemporary issues that underscore the challenging world of policing, this easy-to-understand text balances theory, research, and practice to give students a comprehensive overview of both the foundations of policing and the expanded role of today's police officers. The engaging writing style and stories from the field, coupled with unique coverage of the issues of policing in multicultural communities and the impact of globalization on policing, make this book a must-have for policing courses.


Samuel Walker, The New World of Police Accountability

Police misconduct is nothing new in the United States. Use of excessive force, unjustified shootings, race discrimination, and a general lack of accountability for officer conduct have been serious problems since the first police departments were created in the early nineteenth century. Although today's media coverage of these major police offenses portrays otherwise, significant progress has been made in reducing police misconduct.

The New World of Police Accountability is the first book to provide an original and comprehensive analysis of some of the most important developments in policing over the past ten years. Esteemed author Samuel Walker synthesizes the major developments in the area of police accountability and argues that these developments represent a new period in the history of police reform that promises to address the historic problems of police abuse. This text assesses both the achievements and limitations of police accountability and reshapes the conventional wisdom on this topic. The book covers such issues as federal law suits against the police, consent decrees, citizen oversight of the police, and early intervention systems.
