Abstract:

"Why Law Enforcement Organizations Fail dissects headline cases to examine how things go wrong in criminal justice agencies. The author provides a framework for sorting through these cases to help readers recognize the distinct roles of operational mechanics, organizational structures, rank and file culture and executive hubris in making criminal justice agencies vulnerable to failure. The book examines how dysfunctions such as institutional racism, sexual harassment, systems abuse and renegade enforcement become established and then readily blossom into major scandals. This book is an excellent centerpiece for any class on police organization and management, criminal justice policy, or police-community relations"--
