Community policing has been around for many years, but attempts to communicate its principles in accessible form are rare. In this student-focused text, author Heather Hodgson uses simple, coherent prose, diagrams, case studies, and a wide range of practical exercises to communicate the message that the responsibility for responsive and humane policing flows both ways: police personnel must foster an environment in which community members can "seek and demand a relationship with their police officers and must identify with them," creating a community that is informed, involved, and unified in the goal of preserving peaceful interpersonal relations.
