Updated line-by-line and focusing throughout on the dual themes of problem solving and community/police collaboration and partnerships, this comprehensive text provides law enforcement students and police professionals with a career-focused up-to-the minute look at effective community policing. After presenting an historical perspective and the philosophy behind the movement, police veteran Linda S. Miller and renowned criminal justice educator Kren M. Hess turn to the practical strategies and essential skills needed to implement realistic, workable problem solving within communities today. And, because changes in technology and society continually present new challenges to police officers, COMMUNITY POLICING: PARTNERSHIPS FOR PROBLEM SOLVING (formerly titled THE POLICE IN THE COMMUNITY: STRATEGIES FOR THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY) illustrates the application of procedures to the latest issues, preparing students and professionals to understand the opportunities and responsibilities now faced by the police and the community they serve.
