Local police and sheriff’s deputies are in the news every day. They are under scrutiny like never before and stereotypes about them and the way the perform their duties abound. News coverage and the proliferation of tools such as cellphone and body cameras make their work more visible, even as police per capita is shrinking. This guide focuses on local policing. As police departments nationwide show renewed interest in growing trust, accountability and transparency, they are a good subject for the Bias Busters series, published by the Journalism School at Michigan State University.

The emergence of Public Safety and Law Enforcement Motorcycle Clubs which allegedly closely resemble Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs in their style of dress has created controversies within the law enforcement and outlaw biker communities. Public Safety and Law Enforcement Motorcycle Clubs represent a social response to the breakdown of the police subculture, specifically, the erosion of brotherhood, internal solidarity, and camaraderie within police departments. Police officers who shared a passion for riding motorcycles created their own unique hybrid subculture in order to restore a sense of brotherhood and belonging among themselves. The salient features of the subculture are brotherhood, the wearing of colours with the 3-piece back patch, and riding Harley Davidson motorcycles in group formation. These features hold symbolic meanings for the club members and serve important functions within the subculture. Through motorcycling, Public Safety and Law Enforcement Motorcycle Clubs provide their members with meaningful social participation and interpersonal relations, which re-establishes meaning and a sense of purpose in their lives. This book will make a significant contribution to knowledge because it is the only book written of its kind. Few, if any, researchers have ever been able to obtain access to the Public Safety and Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club subculture and no other scholar has systematically observed and interviewed members of these clubs. This book may have important implications for law enforcement officials who do not understand these officers and their choice of membership in such clubs. Additionally, this book will be beneficial to club members because they have been given a voice and an opportunity to tell their stories to the public. Police officers, academics, bikers, and the general public will also find this book to be a rare and valuable glimpse into a subculture that most people know very little about.
This book introduces readers to the variety of jobs in law enforcement. The book covers FBI, INS, DEA, ATF agents as well as the lesser-known park services ranger, polygraph examiners, and postal inspectors.

CANTONESE FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT A Practical Guide to Cantonese for Law Enforcement, Immigration, Customs, Corrections and Security Professionals Immigrants from Asian countries now make up the largest proportion of new immigrants to North America. Cantonese Chinese is currently the most common Asian dialect encountered by law enforcement officers and public safety officials working in fields such as policing, security, customs, immigration and corrections. Cantonese for Law Enforcement is a new, original reference guide which accomplishes two goals: It helps enforcement officers who already speak some Cantonese to communicate more effectively by providing the specific terms and phrases needed in law enforcement; and It provides the student or teacher of Cantonese with the first phrasebook and vocabulary specifically designed for law enforcement. Developed by a western police officer influenced by his own experiences working in a North American Chinese community for over ten years, Cantonese for Law Enforcement provides practical vocabulary for the types of real-life situations commonly encountered in law enforcement. Cantonese for Law Enforcement has been field tested by police officers in agencies including the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and recognized as a valuable new law enforcement resource.
