Contemporary Policing: Controversies, Challenges, and Solutions

An Anthology

Edited by Quint C. Thurman and Jihong Zhao
Preface by Samuel Walker

Contemporary Policing: Controversies, Challenges, and Solutions presents a broad range of up-to-date articles on new policing strategies, promising approaches to the problem of crime, challenges facing the police from within and outside the organization, policing innovations, and issues of police deviance and ethics.

Editors Quint C. Thurman and Jihong Zhao have chosen key selections from notable scholars such as Lawrence W. Sherman, Samuel Walker, Ronald V. Clarke, former Minneapolis police chief Anthony Bouza, and others to examine how policing has responded to a myriad of challenges since the late 1990s--including crime and disorder, racial profiling, police use of deadly force, gangs, corruption, drug abuse, and sexual misconduct. The article topics range from problem-solving and problem-oriented criminal investigations to CompStat and geographic profiling.
