    Samuel Walker and Charles M. Katz, The Police in America: an Introduction.
        This is the basic text; it provides both an overview and framework for the discussion of policing, as well as specific details, events and policies.
    Carlson, Daniel, P. When Cultures Clash. Strategies for Strengthening Police-Community Relations.
        Written from his perspective as a former cop, Carlson’s text is a readable book about the way in which the attitudes and values of public and police can clash and how to deal with the resulting tensions and potential misunderstandings.
