Police for the future by David H Bayley( )

27 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and Turkish and held by 2,205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Police do not and cannot prevent crime. This alarming thesis is explored by David Bayley, one of the most prolific and internationally renowned authorities on criminal justice and policing, in Police for the Future. Providing a systematic assessment of the performance of the police institution as a whole in preventing crime, the study is based on exhaustive research, interviews, and firsthand observation in five countries - Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Japan, and the United States. It analyzes what police are accomplishing in modern democratic societies, and asks whether police organizations are using their resources effectively to prevent crime. Bayley assesses the impediments to effective crime prevention, describes the most promising reforms currently being tested by the police, and analyzes the choices that modern societies have with respect to creating truly effective police forces. He concludes with a blueprint for the creation of police forces that can live up to their promise to reduce crime and enhance public safety. Written for both the general public and the specialist in criminal justice, Police for the Future offers a unique multinational perspective on one of society's most basic institutions
Changing the guard : developing democratic police abroad by David H Bayley( )

19 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every day the American government, the United Nations, and other international institutions send people into non-English speaking, war-torn, and often minimally Democratic countries struggling to cope with rising crime and disorder under a new regime. These assistance missions attempt to promote Democratic law enforcement in devastated countries. But do these missions really facilitate the creation of effective policing? Renowned criminologist David H. Bayley here examines the prospects for the reform of Police forces overseas as a means of encouraging the development of Democratic governments. In doing so, he assesses obstacles for promoting Democratic policing in a state-of-the-art review of all efforts to promote Democratic reform since 1991. Changing the Guard offers an inside look at the achievements and limits of current American foreign assistance, outlining the nature and scope of the Police assistance program and the agencies that provide it. Bayley concludes with recommendations for how Police assistance could be improved in volatile countries across the world. This book is required reading as an instruction manual for building Democratic policing overseas
The police and political development in India by David H Bayley( )

16 editions published between 1969 and 2016 in English and held by 1,186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a pervasive and relatively modernized element of Indian society, the police are potentially a powerful vanguard in the establishment of a stable democratic process and a major factor in public attitudes toward the government. Professor Bayley’s book, based upon 3,600 interviews during two extended periods of research in India, explores in depth the formative role police play in the maintenance and development of the Indian political system. As a first study of police and political development in a relatively non-modernized country, this book will be a guide for the exploration of a topic critical in the political life of many nations, both developed and underdeveloped.Originally published in 1969.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Police use of force : a global perspective by Joseph B Kuhns( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Police Use of Force: A Global Perspective is a fascinating, international exploration of police use of force, firearms, and less-than-lethal weapons in nations around the world. The book is comprised of three sections: the first focuses on the use of force generally, the second explores firearms and deadly force, and the final section considers less-than-lethal weapons, including pepper spray, TASERs, and other emerging technologies currently on the horizon. The essays gathered here will provide readers with an understanding of the vast differences in how police use force in various countries, as well as why police use force differently under different forms of government. Topics covered include use-of-force definitions, training procedures, policy issues, abuse of police authority, use of force during interrogations, and the use of firearms by armed and unarmed police forces. Finally, there is an essay focusing on how shooting and killing a suspect impacts an officer in the months and years that follow

11 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pri zbranih prispevkih gre za primere raziskav, ki so močno vplivale na izoblikovanje strokovnega mnenja o učinkovitosti policijske prakse na raznih področjih delovanja, v nekaterih primerih pa celo pripeljale do sprememb v policijski politiki. Obsegajo nekatere pomembnejše policijske strategije in vprašanja: zmanjšanje oziroma povečanje števila pripadnikov policije, intervencije v nujnih primerih, patruljiranje, preiskovalno dejavnost, nadzorovanje trgovine z ilegalnimi drogami, posredovanje v družinskih prepirih. Pri tem so pomembne značilnosti raziskovalne metodologije, ki pripomorejo k lažjemu razumevanju ocenjevanja policijske problematike, ali z drugimi besedami, kaj v policiji (in pri njeni znanstveni oceni) deluje in kaj ne

The police in war : fighting insurgency, terrorism, and violent crime by David H Bayley( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Frustrated efforts in both Iraq and Afghanistan give urgency to the question of how to craft effective, humane, and legitimate security institutions in conflict-ridden states - and whether legitimate policing can in fact be developed in the midst of insurgency and terrorism. David H. Bayley and Robert M. Perito confront these questions head on. Against the backdrop of failed US attempts to train police forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, Bayley and Perito explore the role of the local police as an element of successful peace operations and counterinsurgency campaigns. Their analysis ranges from the specifics of training to the larger arena of broad institutional reform. Equally practical and grounded in theory, their work offers crucial guidance on the role and training of local police forces that must grapple daily with the challenges of ongoing conflicts."--Book description

Community policing : issues and practices around the world by Jerome H Skolnick( Book )

5 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph examines the history and central features of community policing and experience with this approach in the United States, Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Japan, and Singapore. Contemporary ideas about community policing arose from reconsideration of police strategies and practices in the 1960's and 1970's. Community policing is regarded as a strategy for improving relations between the police and the public while strengthening police effectiveness in preventing and controlling crime. The four elements of community policing are the organization of community-based crime prevention, the reorientation of patrol activities to emphasize nonemergency servicing, increased police accountability to local communities, and the decentralization of command. It thus involves major changes in the customary roles of the police. Thus, it raises concerns about the implications of thorough integration of the police into the community. In addition, the vitality of community policing may depend on social structure and be greatest in affluent, educated, middle-class communities
Police corruption : what past scandals teach about current challenges by David H Bayley( )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Police corruption is a universal problem, but it is a particular challenge in countries in crisis and emerging from conflict. This report is based on the lessons gleaned from a review of public commissions of inquiry into police misconduct worldwide and their possible application in stability operations, such as those in Iraq and Afghanistan. The study attempts to determine whether past scandals can help us deal more effectively with the contemporary problems of nation building and police reform
Governing the police : experience in six democracies by David H Bayley( Book )

13 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every modern democracy in our increasingly complex world must confront a fundamental problem: how should politicians manage police, ensuring that they act in the public interest while avoiding the temptation to utilize them in a partisan manner? Drawing on first-hand experiences from six democracies, the authors describe how frequently disagreements arise between politicians and police commanders, what issues are involved, and how they are resolved. Governing the Police is organized into three parts: the intellectual and governmental context of democratic governance; the experience of chief officers in that relationship; and the reflections on lessons learned. Instead of describing practices within each individual country, it compares them across countries, developing generalizations about practices, explanations for differences, and assessments of success in managing the police/political relationship. Focusing mainly on the daily, informal interactions between politicians and police as they balance their respective duties, this book compares the experiences and opinions of chief police officers in Australia, Britain, Canada, India, New Zealand, and the United States. By examining the experiences of important officials, the authors explain how the balance between accountability and independence can be managed and what challenges leaders face. The authors conclude by posing well-informed recommendations for improving police governance -- Provided by publisher
