This revised edition of Peter Manning's highly regarded work expands on the conceptual framework and arguments presented in the First Edition. Manning's sociological approach is based on his fieldwork observing, interviewing, and sharing the day-to-day experiences of police in both the United Kingdom and the United States. The author has substantively rewritten and updated the volume. Coverage of technological advancements, current research statistics, citations to important and recent literature, revised tables, and contemporary examples all fuse with Manning's original and still relevant core concepts. Today's well-educated readers interested in understanding the occupation of policing and the role of police in society will find this informative book to be essential to their studies. Substantive changes enrich Manning's original concepts: includes a detailed outline of current technological capabilities for gathering, screening, managing and dispatching information; presents perspectives and findings based on recent studies and research; analyzes the effectiveness of community policing; examines the effects of social, political and economic trends on policing in the U.K. and the U.S.; incorporates examples of change in police policy, namely issues of deadly force and police pursuit; and discusses mass media's effects on policing.

Killer on the Loose, The True Story of Serial Killer Raymond Lee Stewart

Killer on the Loose, The True Story of Serial Killer Raymond Lee Stewart Lowest new price: $71.00
Lowest used price: $19.99
List price: $9.95
Author: Greg Kelly
Brand: Brand: Paperboy Pr

In one week, Raymond Lee Stewart went on a killing spree that left four people dead in Rockford, Illinois and two people dead in Beloit, Wisconsin. The murders terrified both communities. He was captured with the help of an F.B.I. profiler.

Just when Rockford and Beloit residents thought it was safe to go out again, Raymond Lee Stewart made a daring escape from jail. Once again, the community was terrified. He was re-captured after a two hour manhunt.

Greg Kelly was 10 years old at the time and living in Rockford. For Kelly, this was the boogeyman of his childhood. Fifteen years after the murders and the daring escape, Kelly was interviewing Raymond Lee Stewart as part of his job as Assignment Editor for WGN news in Chicago.

The book is a look at how the events in this story affected the lives of the people who were involved; the sister of the killer who claims that years of abuse led Stewart to his murderous path, the mother of one of the victims who forgave the killer and fought to get him off death row, the son of a victim who turned into an alcoholic after his father's murder, the police officer who shot and helped capture Stewart during his 1982 escape and an F.B.I. profiler who helped local authorities catch the killer.
