5.0 out of 5 stars Introducing New Paradigms in Canadian Policing, Jan. 2 2014
This review is from: 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
This review is from: 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.
