One of the few books on the market designed solely for the police operations course, this introductory text will establish a solid foundation in all of the major areas of police operations, with a focus on community-oriented and problem-oriented policing that reflects the current direction of progressive police departments. Now in its 5th edition, POLICE OPERATIONS: THEORY AND PRACTICE provides beginning students with the same solid, comprehensive presentation of basic policing principles and practices that previous editions are known for, while also including the latest research on patrol techniques, cultural diversity, and changes in police administration policy. With an author team that combines extensive practical and professional knowledge with strong experience in the development of instructional materials, this book is an ideal resource for any student who plans to pursue a career in law enforcement.
