Fair Cop PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Fair Cop free pdf Police forces everywhere have been undergoing major social and organizational changes. In this, a longitudinal study of police socialization, the authors present the complexity of police socialization under these changing conditions. Following 150 new police recruits through two years of training and apprenticeship, they question the traditional model of socialization that assumes a degree of stability and homogeneity in the organizational culture. They suggest that recruits' developmental paths can be much more varied and police culture is increasingly vulnerable to change. Drawing on interviews, observations and questionnaires, the authors depict the complex processes by which recruits adapt, redefine, cope with and make sense of the positive and negative aspects of their training and apprenticeship. Bringing together rigorous quantitative analyses with ethnographic description "Fair Cop" aims to provide new empirical data and theoretical understanding about the reproduction and change of police culture.
