Community policing is a philosophy and organizational strategy that expands the traditional police mandate of fighting crime to include forming partnerships with citizenry that endorse mutual support and participation.

This seventh edition extends the road map presented by Robert Trojanowicz, the father of community policing, and brings it into contemporary focus. The text has been revised throughout to include the most current developments in the field, including "Spotlight on Community Policing Practice" features that focus on real-life community policing programs in various cities as well as problem-solving case studies. Also assisting the reader in understanding the material are Learning Objectives, Key Terms, and Discussion Questions, in addition to numerous links to resources outside the text. A glossary and an appendix, "The Ten Principles of Community Policing," further enhance learning of the material.

In recent years, community policing has transformed American law enforcement by promising to build trust between citizens and officers. Today, three-quarters of American police departments claim to embrace the strategy. But decades before the phrase was coined, the New York City Housing Authority Police Department (HAPD) had pioneered community-based crime-fighting strategies. The Last Neighborhood Cops reveals the forgotten history of the residents and cops who forged community policing in the public housing complexes of New York City during the second half of the twentieth century. Through a combination of poignant storytelling and historical analysis, Fritz Umbach draws on buried and confidential police records and voices of retired officers and older residents to help explore the rise and fall of the HAPD's community-based strategy, while questioning its tactical effectiveness. The result is a unique perspective on contemporary debates of community policing and historical developments chronicling the influence of poor and working-class populations on public policy making.

This eclectic collection of contemporary and classical articles examines a variety of operational and administrative issues in the context of modern police work. It provides even coverage in terms of both theoretical and applied perspectives, with an analytical approach. In this regard, the reader is given a foundation as to why the police operate as they do. Gaines and Cordner's anthology offers the following distinctive features: * A number of articles on the community policing movement. * A section addressing administrative issues. Critics of policing have charged that antiquated management styles have hampered the progress of community policing. * The section on doing police work addresses a number of specific operational issues. * A strong section on ethics and deviance. Some critics charge that community policing may result in increased levels of police corruption and ethical violations. * Articles that put the "problem solving" strategy of community policing into perspective. Thought-provoking introductions to each article and each section guide the student and ease instruction by identifying and explaining central issues, key concepts, and relationships among topics. This gives internal cohesiveness and structure to the selections. A comprehensive subject index is also provided.

Using both qualitative and quantitative methods, the authors present a thorough evaluation of the social and organizational processes involved in planning and implementing community policing as well as the effects of such programmes and policies on the police and the community itself.
