The Police in America  3RD Edition (Samuel Walker)

From The Publisher
This engaging and current overview of police officers and policing systems gives readers an inclusive survey of policing in America. Divided into four parts, The Police in America,begins with a compelling analysis of the foundation of law enforcement, including the underlying purpose of police in society, the history of American police, as well as the contemporary law enforcement industry. It goes on to cover everything from the critical role of the beat cop and the fundamental problems in policing to the career path of police officers and a level-by-level overview of police organizations. Using timely articles and excerpts, the author takes readers beyond the headlines and statistics, to present a comprehensive and contemporary overview of what it means to be a police officer.

There was also some renumbering done, and a few across-the-board changes in the procedures listed in the Guides.
Two new items were added:
1) A chart showing the amount of explosive and the kind of damage that could be done by various types of vehicle bombs.
2) Just before the Miranda section at the end, there is a new, 1 page article on How to Catch a Crooked Cop. The article explains how an honest cop can expose corruption without endangering himself or his job.
