Current issues in American law enforcement : controversies and solutions by Harry W More( )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through the years, the police have performed the time-honored functions of controlling crime, maintaining law and order, and providing services. This comprehensive book redefines the police role in many communities, especially as police departments have moved toward the creation of a partnership with citizens, private agencies and other community service departments. Major topics include: (1) an added major development in the external review of police conduct with anticipation that police review boards will become more prevalent; (2) the fact that internal review will still be an important process of the organizational response to police misconduct acknowledging Internal Affairs is here to stay; (3) the trend for the courts at the federal level to intervene with Consent Decrees, Memorandums of Understanding, and Technical Assistance letters in cities from coast to coast; and (4) the use of deadly force that has reached the point where it is viewed as a recurrent police problem. Major cases such as the Rodney King beating, the Louima case, the James Byrd case, and the Matthew Shepard case are examined to see how these issues impacted our operational and legal system. The book also addresses the issues of profiling and vehicular pursuit that remain a major issue in many communities, and while remedies have cured some of these problems, it still remains a major issue. The text also focuses on the inroads that women in policing are making as more females enter law enforcement and ascend to positions of higher power. Law enforcement professionals, policymakers, investigators, attorneys, and the general public will find the book to be of special interest"--Jacket

Law enforcement is increasingly aware of the need for performance-based management.

To insure success it is essential that organizational leaders foster and constantly supervise this managerial process.

Effective police supervision by Harry W More( Book )

50 editions published between 1990 and 2021 in English and Undetermined and held by 664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many contemporary police agencies encounter such problems as low morale, high job stress, high personnel turnover, absenteeism, and conflict. Resolution of these problems is a function of quality management. The quality of management within a police organization determines whether the organization is successful, and the best law enforcement agencies view the first-line supervisor as an integral part of the management team. It is acknowledged, however, that first-line supervisors apply management skills differently than higher-ranking police managers. Problems faced by police agencies can be resolved if managers become conversant with the elements of organizational behavior. Behavioral theory and case studies are applied to help current or potential police department supervisors identify and resolve personal and organizational problems

Patrol field problems and solutions : 847 field situations by Harry W More( )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents case examples of 847 common situations that police officers encounter and explains how to handle them; the text aims to serve as an operational manual for police officers in daily operations in the field in patrol, investigations, vice, traffic, and juvenile units. The book also serves as a basis for discussing operational procedures, policies, and regulations. In addition, it is intended for use in basic training classes. Field training officers can use the field guide as part of the evaluation process when interacting with probationary officers; first-line supervisors can use it to assess how officers resolve problems in terms of application of the law. The preface explains the need for police officers to arrive at a practical solution to many of the problems they confront in the field. The problems came from the research literature; a review of judicial decisions; and examples provided by line officers, supervisors, and managers. The introduction presents 12 principles to consider when forming a philosophy for policing and specifies the 7 central virtues of police officers as prudence, trust, effacement of self-interest, courage, intellectual honesty, justice, and responsibility. It also presents a law enforcement code of ethics. The book₂s other chapters briefly explain common situations encountered by police officers and the appropriate way to deal with the situation. Situations involve assault and battery, animal control, anti-noise ordinances, arrest warrants, burglary, child abuse, coordination with other agencies, crime scene issues, and deadly force. Additional situations relate to evidence, extradition, family disturbances, hate crimes, hit-and-run incidents, hot pursuit, loiterers, malicious mischief, drug law offenses, and protection orders. Further situations relate to sex offenses, search and seizure, information sources, traffic law enforcement, truancy, unlawful assembly, vagrancy, wanted and missing persons, weapons, and officers injured or killed

Designed as an introductory text for college students majoring in criminal justice administration or for police training programs, this text covers the principles of police investigations and their legal aspects. In dealing with techniques of criminal investigation, the volume emphasizes the need for meticulous adherence to rules of law and ethical practices during the entire investigative process. The types of evidence an investigator encounters are examined as well as the importance of evidentiary rules, admissibility, quantum of evidence principles, and an investigator's relationships with both suspects and witnesses. Factors necessary for a legal arrest are outlined, as are the investigator's managerial responsibilities, the basic objectives and processes of investigation, and the major concepts of investigative procedure. Practical guides, such as an information reporting system model, a program for a closed-loop investigation system, and strategies for organizing and conducting an investigation, are provided. A section on investigative reports provides instructions for developing and organizing a good field notebook in a variety of styles, suggested questioning methods for eliciting desired information, and a summary of ways to prepare and write an investigative report. (various examples of report types and styles and lists of their advantages and disadvantages are included.) After studying the text, students should be able to identify important information sources, select interview and interrogation sites according to established criteria, understand the basic steps in a crime scene investigation and special steps for certain types of investigations, and record crime scene data with necessary photographs and videotape support. Special chapters deal with the suspect--his modus operandi and identification--and the victims--their interviews, roles in victim identification, and ways to assist them. The final chapters cover ensuring the quality of an investigation and court testimony. Study topics and questions, references, annotated bibliographies, and an index are included
