Police-community relations by Alan Coffey( Book )

4 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this text is to provide a resource for training police officers in the complexity of community and human relations. The text recognizes that law enforcement is faced with the need to develop line officers who are capable of not only enforcing the law but also of participating in the resolution of social problems associated with crime. The text approaches social problems from the point of view that police are primarily responsible for enforcing law and only indirectly responsible for the resolution of social problems. The authors acknowledge the importance of strengthening police-community relationships. Such relationships have a direct bearing on the character of life in cities and on a community's ability to maintain stability and solve its problems. At the same time, a police department's ability to deal with crime depends to a large extent upon its relation with citizens. Since a community's attitude toward the police is influenced by the actions of individual officers, courteous and tolerant behavior by police officers in their contacts with citizens is essential. If law enforcement programs ignore the conditions that motivate the behavior of minority groups, especially in cities, police officers will continue to act in ways that invite hostility, anger, and violence. The text discusses the effect of social problems on law enforcement, equal justice for minority groups, social change and community tension, implications of group behavior for law enforcement, the link between attitudes and prejudices and the police, and community and human relations.

Police intervention into family crisis : the role of law enforcement in family problems by Alan Coffey( Book )

2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The conceptual framework for the analysis of family crises is presented and alternative solutions are suggested in a law enforcement context. Decisions on defendant's rights during line-ups. The status of the police officer's role is no different from other law enforcement occupational roles in that they are all constantly changing in response to feedback from the many diverse societal elements. Although family crisis intervention is not the only significant change in the police role, it may be the most dramatic. Historically, the police have been more concerned with treating the symptoms than the disease. Now, however, the police role is being modified to insure that police contact with a family disturbance resolves more than the disturbance. The major justification for this trend is the fact that only the police systematically and consistently reach family crises severe enough to require intervention, and, significantly, reach a crisis while it is still a crisis. The policeman who reads this book is not merely told what to do in a particular situation. This problem does not lend itself that easily to a 'black and white' analysis. Rather, he is taught how to analyze the problem and to choose the most appropriate of a number of alternatives. Police intervention into family crisis is organized, with the major points of emphasis and key words printed in bold-face capital letters for easy reference and retention. Each chapter is summarized and provided with a list of discussion topics that adequately represents the content and concepts presented therein
