Practical Police Psychology addresses the psychologically complex world of modern policing. It analyzes both the unusual and the everyday challenges faced by all law enforcement personnel, from the street cop to the departmental brass. Scholarly in scope, Practical Police Psychology goes beyond academic analysis to offer usable, down-to-earth, and immediately applicable - that is, practical - guidelines and strategies for improving the effectiveness and quality of policing in the real world. This book addresses two broad domains of police psychology. The first is the role of law enforcement behavioral science in operational assistance of police activities. The second domain has to do with cops taking care of themselves and their departments. Written by Laurence Miller and from Charles C Thomas Publisher, this book is available at www.ccthomas.com.
