Community Policing and Problem Solving: Strategies and Practices (6th Edition)

While providing updated information about crime in the United States, with particular emphasis placed on terrorism, new sections have also been added concerning rave parties, school bullying, street racing, burglar alarms, and calls. Also newly addressed are adult- and problem-based learning. Chapter sections on such major problems as racial profiling and hate crimes have also been updated, and the chapter on the future has received a major revision. COPPS is now in its third generation as discussed in Chapter 1 , enjoying widespread public acceptance and the attention of academicians who are publishing widely on the topic. While there is still some "devil's advocate" dialogue about COPPS see Chapter 11 , this fourth edition assumes that COPPS has "arrived" and applies this strategy to the real world with its thorough presentation of problems and solutions.
