5.0 out of 5 stars This is an important contribution to any discussion of the ..., Dec 5 2014
This is an important contribution to any discussion of the challenges that face free societies dealing with crime and the financial and social costs to those nations and their citizenry. Well written, concise, thoughtful, the author plows new ground and challenges old paradigms. Clearly, Bob Chrismas has the credentials to speak on these vital issues and to encourage a dialogue among all the parties that must be involved in a collective effort.to be successful. Not to be confused with books that are long on theory and short on practical application, this book inspires and provokes second thoughts, but it is also right where the rubber meets the road.

5.0 out of 5 stars A valuable and insightful book, Dec 5 2014
Achat vérifié(Quest-ce que cest?)
This book is a valuable addition to any post secondary curriculum looking to expand on the understanding of the complexities of law enforcement and how it is changing over time. The first person experience of the author as both a career police officer and student of human rights is is insightful as it is valuable and unique. I would highly recommend this book not just for students but for anyone interested in the strengthening of relationships between community and justice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Introducing New Paradigms in Canadian Policing, Jan. 2 2014
Ce commentaire est de: Canadian Policing in the 21st Century: A Frontline Officer on Challenges and Changes (Hardcover)
The primary message that pervades this book and that comes thought loud and clear is that the hope for more effective policing is potentially imminent and that hope resides in a dramatic shift in policing practices from ones that are reactive and punitive to ones that are preventive and humane in nature. While the author makes clear that the implementation of these practices are hugely challenging and are often labour intensive,more importantly,he also provides considerable evidence from his own first-hand experiences and research that these practices work. For example, the author consistently demonstrates the superiority of collaborative efforts among relevant parties to arrive at solutions(preventive practices)over ones arrived at through zero sum practices(reactive practices). This book is must reading for all those in and outside law enforcement who believe the time is ripe for the shift in approach to policing the author so effectively advocates for and presents in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Insightful and Introspective, Oct. 27 2013
Ce commentaire est de: Canadian Policing in the 21st Century: A Frontline Officer on Challenges and Changes (Hardcover)
Although academic in nature, this volume reads easily and should be approachable to all. If you're a seasoned law enforcement agent, this book gives you a lens into what's on the horizon. If you're new in law enforcement, these pages offer a lot of wisdom and experience. If you know nothing about law enforcement at all, or if you're thinking about a life in law enforcement, this book is especially for you. Law enforcement is nothing like the glamourisation depicted by Hollywood. If you want to find out what it's like to be a police officer, this book is definitely for you.
