Diversity; Policing, Security, and First Responders

The third edition of Diversity Issues in Law Enforcement continues the tradition of excellence in this series. This text has evolved substantially since it was first published in 1997.

This edition will familiarize students to a wide array of diversity issues, and provide them with a practical knowledge of this important aspect of policing.
