Justice without trial: law enforcement in democratic society by Jerome H Skolnick( Book )

50 editions published between 1965 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,042 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An empirical study of police shows how value conflicts of democratic society create conditions that undermine the capacity of police to respond to the rule of law. Data for the study were drawn from an examination of criminal law officials in a city of approximately 400,000 with a nonwhite population of about 30 percent. The gathering of data began in the summer of 1962 and extended into the summer of 1963. The city involved is reputed to have an exemplary criminal justice structure. Through a questionnaire and direct observation, patterns of police behavior were examined in a variety of areas of law enforcement, including traffic violations, prostitution, and narcotics. A sketch of the policeman's "working personality" is presented, along with a description of his operational environment and use of discretion. His use of informers is also treated. Police attitudes toward criminal law and views of the exclusionary rule are examined. Facts presented in the study were deemed accurate by all individuals questioned and observed, although there was not always agreement on interpretations given to the data. It is concluded that the tension between the operational goals of order, efficiency, and initiative on the one hand and the protection of the legal rights of individual citizens on the other constitutes the principle problem of police as a democratic legal organization. The appendix includes a brief survey of the character of the city studied, comparative data on the police, a history and organization of the offices of public defender and district attorney in La Loma County, California, and the questionnaire given to the police

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

5 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 264 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

The police and the urban ghetto by Jerome H Skolnick( Book )

4 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sociologists view of the relations between police and the blacks in urban ghettos. Since no easy solutions exist to resolve the understandable animosity between ghetto dwellers and the police force, it must be understood that the portrait of the police in the community of American Negroes reveals racial prejudices that are not easily tolerable for the blackman. Recommendations for creating a new sense of police professionalism includes legal education of police and a police-community relations unit which must recreate the image of the policeman and his role to being social worker oriented
