Abstract:

As the nation paid its respects to the police officers who lost their lives in the September 11th terrorist attacks, it became clear that we'd never look at the cop on the beat in the same way again. "The Evidence on Policing explores police work in the new century, replacing myths with research findings and providing recommendations for updated policy and practices to guide it. This book answers the most basic question: What do police do? "The Evidence on Policing reviews how police work is organized, its expanding responsibilities, the increasing diversity among police employees, and the complex interactions between officers and citizens. It also discusses community policing, use of force, racial profiling, and more. The book evaluates the success of common police techniques, such as focusing on crime "hot spots." It looks at the issue of legitimacy--how the public gets information about police work, how police are viewed by different groups, and how police can gain community trust. "The Evidence on Policing will be important to anyone concerned about police work: policy makers, administrators, educators, police supervisors and officers, journalists, and interested citizens.
