Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book has remained a solid text that presents a very applied approach to policing. It clearly has been revised and kept up to date. Hats off to Dempsey and Forst for keeping this book of the same high quality and application it had when first published."Willard M. Oliver, Sam Houston State University

"This text is extremely readable and on point with the history, duties, and structure of the police. The boxes offer valuable information, definitions, appropriate quotes, and interviews. The review questions are engaging and assist a person to put themselves "on the job."Christine L. Stymus, Bryant & Stratton College
