"Police worldwide are finding it increasingly difficult to prevent crime and maintain public safety and a sense of security while dealing with decreasing budgets and personnel. The exchange of effective crime fighting principles and proven best practices is crucial to helping them succeed. Drawn from the proceedings at the 2005 IPES meeting in the Czech Republic on effective crime prevention, this book addresses the impact of terrorism and transnational crime on law enforcement in the U.S. and Europe, the effects of democratic reforms on policing, and the positive influence of the unionization of police forces. It also reviews counterterrorism, border control, transnational criminality, measurement of police effectiveness, and the investigation of juvenile crimes."-- Provided by publisher..
