Meticulously researched, this text first defines the concept of community-oriented policing and then guides students through a systemic approach to both its principles and practices. Providing a desirable balance between theory and applications, it considers various interpretations of the overall philosophy and approach to community-oriented policing. The fourth edition includes over 70 additional references and has been streamlined to 15 chapters. There is more coverage of homeland security and recent federal budget cuts, in addition to the latest research and debate on the systemic approach to policing.
