Format: Paperback
Professor Goldstein has written a thought provoking examination of how to improve policing. His book has inspired an international conference on Problem Oriented Policing held each year by the Police Executive Research Forum. Law enforcement agencies attend to hear examples of successful and unsuccessful attempts at problem solving. Using the concepts identified in this book and applying the problem solving approach to real world problems, agencies compete for the Herman Goldstein award honoring the very best in problem solving efforts. Goldstein advocates a best practices approach to analyzing police problems and applying effective solutions tailored to individual communities. Other authors have expanded on this problem-oriented approach, but Dr. Goldstein is the original and pioneer author in this field. Another recommended book expands on this topic, "Beyond 911, a new era for policing" by Malcolm Sparrow, Mark Moore and David Kennedy.

If you study criminal justice or homeland security, you likely know all about Problem-oriented Policing. This book is by the man who coined the term originally, and is an absolute great read. It's worthy of textbook status, though I personally read it just for personal enlightenment. I encourage anyone with an interest in the field to give it a read, you won't regret it.
