1 Review
The strength of this book is that it provides coverage of both law enforcement and the criminal justice system in one convenient text. No other text offers a similar hybrid. Wrobleski and Hess offer a practical, yet comprehensive, approach and emphasize the law enforcement perspective as they examine the role of police in the criminal justice system. Another key strength of this book is that it has an easily accessible writing style and extensive pedagogy.
