V A Leonard
Date Published
115 pages
The manual is intended to accompany the text Fundamentals of Law Enforcement and is divided by chapter into seven sections: chapter objectives, chapter summary, major concepts, true or false statements, multiple choice problems, suggested teaching aids, and annotated bibliography.
The twelve chapters of the text cover such topics as: the police as a major component of the criminal justice system, the police role, the police culture, the police and the law, policing the community, and the police and youth. Other subjects include police organization and administration, productivity, and the quality of working life in the police field. In addition, police policy, police unions, politics and the police, and police corruption are discussed. A key to the true and false statements and to the multiple choice problems is provided. An appendix lists educational film sources for course supplements. It is suggested that the major concept section be used as a spur to the development of a student research attitude and as the basis for individual or group assignments.
