Police operations : theory and practice

Summary: "This introductory text covers all major areas of police operations with a focus on community-oriented and problem-oriented policing, which reflects the current direction of progressive police departments. Providing a comprehensive presentation of police operations, the authors incorporate the latest research on patrol techniques, cultural diversity, and changes in police administration policy. The text goes beyond the traditional focus on the patrol function of policing, but is still geared towards the student pursuing a career in law enforcement. Known for solid coverage of basic policing principles and practices, this text is one of the few texts in this market intended purely for the police operations course, and not for a combination of introduction to law enforcement and police operations courses. Wrobleski brings a practical and professional knowledge with a practitioner's point of view, while Hess brings her experience of over 25 years of developing instructional products." -- Wadsworth.
