Current trends in police reform stress much greater interaction with the community and, consequently, carry new implications for police roles, operations, and social control. Community Policing outlines the major issues confronting this movement, and differentiates the rhetoric from the reality associated with police force restructuring. The varying perspectives and case studies presented will interest community organizations, police academy educators, law enforcement officials, as well as all concerned citizens. The contributors address a broad spectrum of community policing issues, giving a comprehensive and in-depth analysis. This important new book examines the historical, philosophical, and empirical bases of the relationship between police and community to offer the most comprehensive study yet of this important law enforcement reform movement.
