Summary New and recurring issues confronting the police service are explored. Among the topics covered are: the police and politics; police and minority groups; the role of courts in a statewide criminal justice information system; team policing; lateral entry; police review boards; the police and their problems (e.g., police community relations); the use of force; job performance evaluation; organized crime; police ethics; the traditional police organization; and police planning. The text combines theory with everyday police knowledge in addressing problems important to both police administrators and personnel. A bibliography is appended.
