The seventh edition ofThe Police and the Communitycontinues the long-standing tradition of this well-established book by providing a solid foundation of history in the police-community relationship integrated with the most contemporary issues and trends. The author, who has worked extensively with police agencies around the world, brings a unique combination of theory, research, and policy to the issues discussed. A unique aspect of this book is that it goes beyond community policing and examines an array of important issues which are inextricably related to the provision of police service and the general police-community relationship. The book is intended for researchers, students, and practitioners who seek a broad and thoughtful approach in the police-community relationship.
