Police and Policing Law
Ashgate, 2006 - Law - 585 pages
This collection of essays focuses on law and society research examining how police manage the job put to them and the extent to which the law figures in what they do. In step with law and society scholarship, many of the articles are empirical explorations of the ways in which law enforcement works 'on the ground' in a variety of policing contexts ranging from patrol to police interrogation.
