Policing in Practice is an edited collection of writings which present a multidisciplinary consideration of historical and contemporary policing practice. With contributions from an array of academics as well as reflections from practitioners, this text provides a comprehensive body of literature which considers the theoretical underpinnings of the practical issues facing a police officer in the modern day. Divided into two parts, this book considers both the operational and organisational environments and details the processes, as well as challenges, facing police officers in both of these sectors. Policing in Practice addresses the policing profession broadly and has been specifically developed for the new or aspiring police officer.
