Synopsis

This collection of essays examines the growth of professionalization in national police forces in England, France, Germany, Ireland, and the Netherlands. Particular emphasis is placed on the expansion and development of police forces and the effect of this development on organization and strategy. By examining the police in five societies, the authors provide valuable analyses of the ways police forces differ, how they approach their tasks, and how they view themselves.
