About the Book
The Seventh edition of Police-Community Relations and the Administration of Justice continues the theme set in the first edition: citizen participation is critical to the effectiveness of the criminal justice system. This is especially true for the police. The police have a unique responsibility to encourage and facilitate citizen participation. This book addresses the internal and external communities served by the police and discusses past, present, and future practices that can create and sustain meaningful and successful police-community relations. Fully updated and revised, this seventh edition features the following: A new introductory chapter on the Administration of Justice and the Police, All chapters updated to reflect current events such as the impact of "Homeland Security", A reorganization of chapters within the text to ensure better flow of police-community relations topics, New examples of police-community programs throughout the United States, A concluding Reality Check added at the end of each chapter, A listing of relevant police-related websites, Key Concepts added to each chapter, and additional support materials including PowerPoints and an electronic test bank.
"The majority of those reading this text have completed other courses about the criminal justice system and its processes."
