Although there is a plethora of studies on crime and punishment, understanding of the important issues in law enforcement has little general literature to draw on. Currently available reference works on policing are narrowly focused and sorely out-of-date. To this end, a distinguished roster of authors, representing many years of knowledge and practice in the field, draw on the latest research and methods to delineate, describe, and analyze all areas of law enforcement.

The Encyclopedia of Law Enforcement, originally published in 2004, provides a comprehensive, critical and descriptive examination of all facets of law enforcement on the state and local, federal and national, and international stages.

Key features include:

  • Coverage of State and Local, Federal, and International law enforcement
  • More than 250 contributors have composed over 400 essays on all facets of law enforcement
  • An editorial board of the leading scholars, researchers, and practitioners in the field of law enforcement
  • Descriptions of United States Federal Agency law enforcement components
  • Comprehensive and inclusive coverage, exploring concepts and social and legal patterns within the larger topical concern
  • Global, multidisciplinary analysis

This title is available in eBook format through Gale Virtual Reference Library.
