Abstract:

This book provides readers with insight into the intellectual, emotional, and social challenges experienced by law enforcement personnel while simultaneously challenging readers to understand the need to hold law enforcement responsible when they violate legal codes of conduct.


• Examines the social, political, and economic implications and impacts of police worship in the United States

• Explores attitudes and practices of law enforcement agencies as they have related historically to interaction with people of minority cultures

• Reveals the inherent classism and racism that serve as the foundation for most law enforcement practices and explores how these inherent principles play out through multiple contemporary real-world examples

• Provides readers with tools to help law enforcement personnel and the people they serve to better understand each other and coexist in communities
