Law: Book Series

Routledge Advances in Police Practice and Knowledge

Routledge Advances in Police Practice and Knowledge is a new series of books which will bring together established academics and authors in the field of police studies to provide themed text books aimed at supporting students engaging with police studies within higher education. The focus of the series is to provide academically rigorous accounts of research and knowledge and to contextualise them in the practical and applied context of policework. In doing so, the books that make up the series will provide an invaluable resource to students studying policing through a variety of academic and vocational routes.

The Editors, Dr Tom Cockcroft and Dr Martin Wright dedicate this series to the memory of Professor PAJ (Tank) Waddington who believed policing to be an honourable profession, and whose career’s work embodied the values that inform the direction of the series.
