Professionalism in Policing: An Introduction will provide you with a good understanding of the police officer’s role in American society today. This accessible book will give you insight into the real world of policing by addressing such topics as racial profiling, police brutality, education, police socialization and leadership. Professionalism in Policing: An Introduction also includes the topics of criminal law and ethics, which are fundamental to policing but missing from other books on the topic. You will be presented with real-life scenarios where you get to be the decision maker, while learning to understand that the decisions you will make as a police officer may have a lasting impact on your life, as well as on your community. The author has a strong academic and practical background. In addition to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and at a police academy for 25 years, he also has field experience as a police officer, sheriff, and conservation officer.
