Reviews

'This accessible reference work is much more than a dictionary; in addition to a traditional definition, each entry provides an overview of relevant research on the topic, often engaging in a short, lively debate about the topic's significance to policing and broader criminal justice issues. The SAGE Dictionary of Policing deserves a place on the bookshelves of scholars around the world.'Dorothy Moses SchulzPhD John Jay College of Criminal Justice

'This dictionary covers a great many of the key concepts and issues in modern policing. Its value is both in the quality of the contributors and the way in which each section not only gives clear and accessible explanations but also gives an overview of the evaluation available. It is a very welcome resource for those who not only want a reference book but also some guidance on evidence-based practice.'Chief Constable Sara ThorntonThames Valley Police 'This accessible reference work is much more than a dictionary; in addition to a traditional definition, each entry provides an overview of relevant research on the topic, often engaging in a short, lively debate about the topic's significance to policing and broader criminal justice issues.
