The New World of Police Accountability, 2nd ed. Co-authored with Carol Archbold (Thousand Oaks: Sage Publications, 2014)
The New World of Police Accountability is completely rewritten and updated version of the first edition. Carol Archbold is now a co-author, bringing her expertise in risk management and other subject. This new edition continues to examine the most important recent developments in this always changing field. The book argues that a set of “best practices” has emerged, that includes (1) state of the art use of force policies, (2) an early intervention system, and (3) a customer-friendly citizen complaint system. These best practices are incorporated in Justice Department Consent Decrees over the Los Angeles, Cincinnati, and other police departments.
The new edition organizes the various aspects of accountability around a PTSR framework: policy, training, supervision, and review. The book argues that all four of these elements must be addressed to achieve a full and self-sustaining accountability in a law enforcement agency.
