About this Textbook

This edited textbook covers a range of key operational and strategic aspects of police administration, from experts who have both an academic and practitioner background. It sets out the modern challenges and demands facing the police and then covers the theory and practice of how to deal with such issues, including the leadership skills which are required at every level. These challenges are covered in sections on the use of force, international policing, investigation of new crimes and forensic investigation, counter-terrorism, intelligence, mental well-being, and community policing. Some of the key themes discussed include dealing with public demand for police services, diversity and partnership/interoperability working locally, regionally and internationally. This book is designed at all levels of warranted officer and speaks to undergraduate and postgraduate policing students with a range of pedagogic features including seminar and exam questions.

Reviews

“This book represents an anthology of policing practice and leadership for the twenty-first century and the editors have managed to ride simultaneously the academic and practitioner horses by producing a book which is important to both. The content covers an abundance of timely crime and policing issues including; terrorism, child protection, police accountability, partnership working and cyber- crime. In addition, the unusual collection of contributors affords an opportunity for exploration of lesser studied areas of ‘policing’, such as ‘UN peace-keeping’, ‘armed policing’, and crisis management, which increase the diversity and range of the book. That said, the common themes of decision making and leadership hold the whole thing together very well. A welcome and much needed resource for students and police practitioners alike.” (Professor Jason Roach, University of Huddersfield, UK)
