For courses in Police and Society, Police Community Relations, or Introduction to Policing offered by Criminal Justice departments.
Written with a behavioral science perspective and an emphasis on practitioners, this timely text reflects a fundamental shift from traditional, reactive policing to priorities of prevention through community partnerships. It is a virtual "how to" manual to help guide the promotion of public safety and the quality of life in American neighborhoods by law enforcement agencies. Stevens provides a precise overview that enables students to understand the connection of theory to application and the social constructs of policing strategies. The book attempts to bring agencies closer to developing a "best" model that can at the same time be a successful classroom tool.
