Topics will include: the social and political contexts that shaped the development of policing, the creation of police departments, various types of criminal behavior that affected policing, the evolution of a distinct police culture, and the long tradition of various attempts to reform the police. The recommended readings are intended as a supplement for those who wish to know more. | Lecture + Q&A.
