For introductory courses in Law Enforcement, American Government; and graduate seminars on Public Policy.

This practical text provides an insightful, real, and detailed analysis of police education and training. Its author, Dr. James O'Keefe, successfully ran the largest police academy in the world for ten years (N.Y.P.D.), and comprehensively looks at the logic, structure, and actual course content police offers should be studying to effectively meet and manage the complex challenges of the 21st century. His book addresses critical issues in law enforcement education, discusses why police officers do the things they do, advocates the need of elected officials in local and state government to understand how their police officials should be educated and trained, and explains the need for a "standard of training."
