This text is about some of the ways in which the police have made use of information technology (IT). The interest is in why some information systems succeed in contributing to performance and gaining the acceptance of users, while other systems fail to do so. understand the social character of technical innovation. The context of policing is complex and can be analyzed at several different, thought intersecting levels - the external environment; the organization as a whole; departments, sections or interests within the organizations; and particular work groups and networks. When the police embark on major changes - including technical changes - they are caught up in a web of contradictions and conflicts in both their internal and external relations. IT has its uses but does not provide an instant fix for policing problems.

The New Police Officer During the past twenty years the tasks required of police officers have expanded and changed with dramatic rapidi ty. The tradi tional roles of the police had been those of law enforcement and the maintenance of public order. As a consequence police officers were typically large-bodied males, selected for their physical abilities and trained to accept orders and enforce the law. Over the past two decades, however, the industrialized nations have placed a variety of new demands on police officers. To traditional law enforcement and public order tasks have been added social work, mental health duties, and cORllluni ty relations work. For example, domestic disputes, violence between husbands and wives, lovers, relatives, etc. , have increased in frequency and severity (or at least there has been a dramatic increase in reporting the occurence of domestic violence). Our societies have no formal system to deal with domestic disputes and the responsibility to do so, in most countries, has fallen to the police. In fact, in some areas as many as 607. of calls for service to the police are related to domestic disputes (see the chapter in this text by Dutton). As a result the police officer has had to become a skilled social worker, able to intervene with sensi ti vi ty in domestic situations. Alternatively, in the case of West Germany, the officer has had to learn to work co-operatively with social workers (see the chapter by Steinhilper).

Mobile technologies have brought about major changes in police equipment and police work. If a utopian narrative remains strongly linked to the adoption of new technologies, often formulated as 'magic bullets' to real occupational problems, there are important tensions between their 'imagined' outcomes and the (unexpected) effects that accompany their daily 'practical' use by police officers. This article offers an analysis of police officers' perceptions and interactions with security devices. In so doing, it develops a conceptual typology of strategies for coping with new technology inspired by Le Bourhis and Lascoumes: challenging, neutralizing and diverting. To that purpose, we adopt an ethnographic approach that focuses on the discourses, practices and actions of police officers in relation to three security devices: the mobile digital terminal, the mobile phone and the body camera. Based on a case study of a North American municipal police department, the article addresses how these technological devices are perceived and experienced by police officers on the beat.

Criminal investigation is a dynamic endeavor impacted by changes in human nature, statutory and constitutional laws, and methods of operation. New challenges are constantly posed for the investigator and the investigation of drug offenses is no exception. It takes advanced skills to keep pace with the criminal mind. Unfortunately, the skills acquired in basic police training are just that: basic. In order to stay ahead of their criminal counterparts, drug enforcement officers must seek extensive, ongoing training and knowledge, not just to secure a lawful conviction but to keep themselves and the public safe. This new edition of the bestselling Practical Drug Enforcement provides a thoroughly revised and updated guide to the contemporary aspects of covert criminal investigations and the management of the drug enforcement unit itself. Appealing to a wide variety of law enforcement officers in all jurisdictions, it addresses different methods of detection, investigation, surveillance, and capture of drug traffickers as well as identifies those methods commonly employed by criminals to avoid detection. Drawing from the author’s expertise in the field, and as a nationally recognized consultant, this book contains practical hands-on information for the officer in the street and the administrator coordinating operations. This edition includes new drug identification photos, charts, and updated statistics, as well as an entirely new chapter on the surreptitious monitoring of suspects, entrapment, and “possession with intent” cases. New topics include— Drug courier profiling High-tech surveillance, including GPS and thermal imaging Raid procedures for clandestine labs Drug diversion by physicians and pharmacies Searching, seizing, and handling drug evidence Reverse sting operations Undercover work, risks, and stress Informant management Designed as an investigative resource on current drug enforcement techniques, Practical Drug Enforcement, Third Edition allows law enforcement personnel from a variety of jurisdictions and priorities to maintain concurrent initiatives regarding the identification, apprehension, and prosecution of all known drug offenders and drug traffickers at local and national levels.

This manual provides some case studies taken from the European Court of Human Rights’s (ECtHR) jurisprudence, related to the obligation to respect and to protect human rights, to non-discrimination and to the human rights of police officers. Depending on the objectives of your training course and your target group, you may wish to use other case studies than those presented in the manual. Here are some useful hints on how to design your own case study. ECtHR case law can serve as a basis for your case studies. It may also be useful to look at national case law. Police officers who ensure that people are able to exercise their fundamental rights and freedoms earn the respect and trust of the public. With this in mind, this manual by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) sets out to foster such human rights-based police work by integrating human rights training into the heart of police training, in line with the European Union’s goals in the field of justice and home affairs. In so doing, the manual translates ‘high’ principles into specific practical exercises that facilitate police work, and supports police officers in internalising the concepts that drive human rights-based policing – helping to ensure that they are equipped to make the right choices in their daily work. The manual focuses on crucial police-related issues, such as diversity and non-discrimination, the absolute prohibition of torture, and also the human rights of police officers. Tried and tested with different police academies in the EU, the manual is intended as a practical tool for implementing fundamental rights-based policing in the EU. This manual is designed to assist police academies in integrating human rights into police training, rather than relegating such training to an optional add-on. It focuses in particular on those rights that help engender trust in the police working in diverse societies: nondiscrimination, dignity and life. It provides a practical, hands-on training tool for EU Member State institutions, drawing on the knowledge and evidence of the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights’ (FRA) stakeholder engagement and research findings. The manual walks training participants step-by-step through the fundamental rights implications of real-life situations, providing them with the tools they need to analyse and deal with situations they may one day face themselves. The manual seeks to instil a view of fundamental rights as a tool to enhance police effectiveness and professionalism. Professional human rights-based police work is a key source of legitimacy for the police and enhances the effectiveness of policing. When police ensure that citizens are able to exercise their fundamental rights and freedoms, they are not only earning the respect and trust of the public but they are also maximising the effectiveness of their work. Thus, the manual’s overall aim is to aid in establishing a relationship of trust between police and societies in all their diversity.

This book explores how predictive policing transforms police work. Police departments around the world have started to use data-driven applications to produce crime forecasts and intervene into the future through targeted prevention measures. Based on three years of field research in Germany and Switzerland, this book provides a theoretically sophisticated and empirically detailed account of how the police produce and act upon criminal futures as part of their everyday work practices. The authors argue that predictive policing must not be analyzed as an isolated technological artifact, but as part of a larger sociotechnical system that is embedded in organizational structures and occupational cultures. The book highlights how, for crime prediction software to come to matter and play a role in more efficient and targeted police work, several translation processes are needed to align human and nonhuman actors across different divisions of police work. Police work is a key function for the production and maintenance of public order, but it can also discriminate, exclude, and violate civil liberties and human rights. When criminal futures come into being in the form of algorithmically produced risk estimates, this can have wide-ranging consequences. Building on empirical findings, the book presents a number of practical recommendations for the prudent use of algorithmic analysis tools in police work that will speak to the protection of civil liberties and human rights as much as they will speak to the professional needs of police organizations. An accessible and compelling read, this book will appeal to students and scholars of criminology, sociology, and cultural studies as well as to police practitioners and civil liberties advocates, in addition to all those who are interested in how to implement reasonable forms of data-driven policing.

Articles in this volume discuss efforts by the police to reduce violence in society and the problem of the use of violence by and against the police. The introductory article notes that when police attempt to stop violence, they must often be violent themselves. One paper demonstrates the personal and institutional consequences of the moral dilemmas involved in police work; when police use 'dirty' means to achieve good ends they may lose their sense of moral proportion. Empirical evidence of violence against police is presented. For example, the first systematic analysis of the circumstances surrounding police killings is discussed, and the myth that many officers are killed in family fights is deflated. The practice of arming off-duty police officers is criticized by another contributor as harmful to both police officers and citizens. Ways in which police behavior might be changed to reduce injuries to citizens are suggested in two papers which show how prior decisions can constrain the options an officer has by the time a confrontation develops. Also discussed are police shootings at minorities in Los Angeles. Many contributors point to the need for more research, especially concerning violence against the police. Scarcity of basic data accounts for lack of practical solutions to the problems of violence and police. Footnotes, case studies, and statistical data are included.
