The author provides comprehensive coverage of all the issues that revolve around this subject. I recommend this title for officers, line supervisors, and police administration as a useful reference to guide policy and procedure.
Could not be happier with the service or the product.
Finally, a book on racial profiling that studies this issue in an intelligent and objective manner. Withrow's approach is both scholarly and practical and most importantly free of the distracting rhetoric that surrounds this important issue. He offers real solutions for researchers, police practitioners and public policy makers to one of the most important issues in American policing. This text is a must read.
