How To Recognize Good Policing
Problems and Issues

Edited by:


September 1998 | 280 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Since the early 1970's, police reform has been a major concern throughout the world. Widespread implementation of various forms of problem-oriented policing, plus the unforeseen decline of crime rates in recent years observed in most Western countries, has focused attention on the need for evaluation studies of policing. How To Recognize Good Policing brings together the research findings and practical experience of acknowledged experts in the field.
