COMMUNITY POLICING: PARTNERSHIPS FOR PROBLEM SOLVING gives you a career-focused, up-to-the minute look at effective community policing. After giving you a fascinating historical perspective as well as the philosophy behind the movement, police veteran Linda Miller and renowned criminal justice educator Kären Hess turn to the practical strategies and essential skills needed to implement realistic, workable problem solving within communities today. And, because changes in technology and society continually present new challenges to police officers, this accessible book illustrates the application of procedures to the latest issues, showing you the opportunities and responsibilities now faced by the police and the community they serve. "Strategies for Success" sections present strategies policing professionals can use while interacting and problem solving with an increasingly diverse American population.
