Description
From Mark Fuhrman to the Rodney King incident, the image of the rogue cop is embedded in the minds of many American citizens. The high profile of police deviancy in the media has provided the public with an overwhelmingly negative image of police integrity. In this book, readers are given a glimpse at the other side of this image and the inner stresses and truths about policing in America. Written by an experienced author (Bartollas) and a practitioner (Hahn), this book brings together an ideal mix of the academic and the practical in an intriguing and comprehensive overview of the state of policing today. Human interest stories interspersed between the discussion of such important topics as police stress, police corruption, excessive and deadly force, constitutional law, and suspectsO rights add to the readability of this informative book. In every chapter, there is an effort to place the role and functions of the police in context, whether it is historical, sociocultural, legal, political, or economic. This wide range of contexts provides readers with a complete picture of policing as it relates to various aspects of daily life. Law enforcement officers, students of law enforcement, and anyone else interested in the current state of policing today.
