Utilizing a unique debate format, this criminal justice book addresses some of the most controversial, topical issues in policing today. Drawing on previously unpublished materials, the book includes contributions by well known authors from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives, all with expertise in their particular topic and an enthusiasm for debating that is guaranteed to hold reader interest. The unique "Yes/No/Rejoinder" format lets the reader examine both sides of each issue without researching additional sources.

Part I discusses the legal framework in which police operate; topics include interpretation of the Fourth Amendment, civil forfeiture, a police officer bill of rights, and juvenile curfews. Part II looks at police personnel practices, including education and contracts. Part III asks questions about the police organization, including its paramilitary structure, the existence of a subculture, and the effectiveness of pursuits. In Part IV community policing issues are covered, including the role of citizen review boards and the media.
