This was on the assigned reading list for our sergeant's exam. I couldn't get past the first chapter. What a bunch of garbage. If you like to buy into propaganda, you'll love this book.

I wonder what kind of kick back the testing company gets for drumming up sales for a book no one would ever buy otherwise?

This is a comprehensive but well organized for learning text book. The authors include a former police sergeant who has adopted Community Policing as a cause to be continued, and educators who have lent their expertese to the study and development of this approach to law enforcement. Community Policing,as the book is quick to point out, is as old as the concept of policing. In 1653, in the Dutch colony on Manhattan Island, a roster of citizens was used, whereby male citizens would be called upon to engage in a "night watch" assigned to various areas identified by numbers. A drummer would be available for relaying a patrol area number by beating the drum to alert others to come to the aid of the officer as backup. Over the years, citizens began to hire proxies to take their turn at the watch, and professional policing came to be. The language of police still includes the terms "watch" and "beat", and the quarter staffs used by the early colonists as basic control weapons have evolved slightly into the modern police baton. The book notes that the complexity of our society's development, the laws, and the evolution of various different communities has tended to isolate those communities from each other and all from the police. Community policing is one strategy designed to bring the communities and the police together to determine, by mutual understanding and cooperation in maintaining the peace in the greater community. The text includes numerous innovations and approaches employed by police departments all over the nation.Read more ›

It was used and had some stuff highlighted/underlined but it fulfilled it's purpose in studying for the course. Some parts were boring or simply untrue/poorly researched but it was written in a way and with information from actual cops that made it interesting.
