Series: Northeastern Series on Gender, Crime, and Law. Publisher: Northeastern (November 4, 1999). This book discusses Community Policing in a small Neighbourbood town and discusses the differences between Community Policing Officers (known as Neighbourhood Policing Officers) and Patrol Officers, specifically the gender differences.

Policing the Poor: From Slave Plantation to Public Housing (Northeastern Series on Gender, Crime, and Law).

Unlike previous studies of community policing, which analyze programs through the lens of law enforcement, this book focuses on the history, experiences, and perspectives of the people whose lives are most affected by today's policing strategies. While many applaud the apparent successes of community and saturation policing, Neil Websdale contends instead that such law enforcement initiatives oppress rather than protect the poor, particularly African Americans in large urban centers. Policing the Poor: From Slave Plantation to Public Housing (Northeastern Series on Gender, Crime, and Law).

While traditional policing celebrated male officers as masculine crime fighters who were tough, aloof, and physically intimidating, policewomen were characterized as too soft and emotional for patrol assignments and were relegated to roles focusing on children, other women, or clerical tasks. With the advent of community policing, women's perceived skills are finally finding a legitimate place in police work, and law enforcement structures now encourage such previously undervalued feminine traits as trust, cooperation, compassion, interpersonal communication, and conflict resolution.In this illuminating study of gender and community policing, Susan L. Miller draws on a combination of survey data, forthright interviews with a diverse mix of police officers, and extensive fieldwork conducted in a midwestern city where community policing has been practiced for over a decade. She describes the differences and similarities in policing styles of male and female officers, considers the relationships that develop between neighborhood police on foot and patrol officers in squad cars, and explores the interactions between neighborhood officers and community members.Miller confronts such questions as how police reconcile incompatible images of masculinity and femininity; how actions of neighborhood police officers compare with those of traditional rapid response patrol officers; how community police cope with resistance from the rank and file; and how gender and gender-role expectations shape police activities and the evaluation of new skills.Gender and Community Policing provides both a feminist framework for community policing and a fresh examination of how race, gender, and sexual orientation affect police image, identity, and methods.

The Sinners from Mitar
Miller confronts an important issue that puts focus on the important skills that women bring to the law enforcement arena. Recruitment policies that favor men, and biased entry tests that perpetuate disriminatory requirements must be replaced by an honest assessment of an individual's ability to sucessfully manage dangerous situations. Only then may we move towards a society that recognizes and appreciates the great strengths that women bring to law enforcement.

I have always been interested in Community Policing. This book discusses Community Policing in a small Neighbourbood town and discusses the differences between Community Policing Officers (known as Neighbourhood Policing Officers) and Patrol Officers, specifically the gender differences. The author investigates if a particular gender is more suited to one of the two types of policing. The study is qualitative, which I prefer over quantitative. This gives the readers a strong understanding of the experiences of male and female Neighbourhood Policing Officers and Patrol Officers and the gender issues they face. Highly recommended for anyone who is interested in policing in general, community policing, or gender issues.
