Violent behavior is an unavoidable aspect of human nature, and as such, it has become deeply integrated into modern society.
In order to protect and defend citizens, the foundational concepts of fairness and equality must be adhered to within any
criminal justice system. As such, examining police science through a critical and academic perspective can lead to a better
understanding of its foundations and implications. Police Science: Breakthroughs in Research and Practice is an authoritative
reference source for the latest scholarly material on social problems involving victimization of minorities and police accountability.
It also emphasizes key elements of police psychology as it relates to current issues and challenges in law enforcement and
police agencies. Highlighting a range of pertinent topics such as police psychology, social climate and police departments,
and media coverage, this publication is an ideal reference source for law enforcement officers, criminologists, sociologists,
policymakers, academicians, researchers, and students seeking current research on various aspects of police science.
