The State of American Policing: Psychology, Behavior, Problems, and Solutions

Author(s): Thomas, David;

Abstract:

Written by a veteran police officer turned college professor, this modern-day study of American policing covers hot-button issues including police use of deadly force against and bias toward minorities.


• Takes a multidisciplinary approach to the problem, covering police psychology, behavior, policy, and law

• Addresses the proliferation of violence in minority communities

• Examines the response of minority communities to police brutality and the shooting of unarmed Black men, in addition to the psychology of oppression within those communities

• Illustrates signs that a police agency is faltering, how a community becomes disenfranchised from police and the consequences for law enforcement efforts, and quality assurance measures that could reduce or remove the problems
