Included again are chapters on personnel and financial administration, the rights of criminal justice employees, and a chapter on technology in the justice system. The sections on communications, community policing, and alternative dispute resolution have also been expanded.

New key features include:

  • A chapter entitled "Special Challenges: Labor Relations, Discipline, and Liability"
  • Boxed articles from Law Enforcement News and courts- and corrections-related newsletter
  • Incorporation of sections on sexual harassment, police ethics and values, resource allocation, workload, deployment, shifts and scheduling, and truth in sentencing
  • Expansion of material on communications and alternative dispute resolution
  • Addition of new community policing case studies
  • Appendix I with a list of related Web sites
