Changing the Guard by David H. Bayley

Book Description

Every day the American government, the United Nations, and other international institutions send people into non-English speaking, war-torn, and often minimally democratic countries struggling to cope with rising crime and disorder under a new regime. These assistance missions attempt to promote democratic law enforcement in devastated countries. But do these missions really facilitate the creation of effective policing? Renowned criminologist David H. Bayley here examines the prospects for the reform of police forces overseas as a means of encouraging the development of democratic governments. In doing so, he assesses obstacles for promoting democratic policing in a state-of-the-art review of all efforts to promote democratic reform since 1991. Changing the Guard offers an inside look at the achievements and limits of current American foreign assistance, outlining the nature and scope of the police assistance program and the agencies that provide it. Bayley concludes with recommendations for how police assistance could be improved in volatile countries across the world. This book is required reading as an instruction manual for building democratic policing overseas.

What Works in Policing presents selections of the best evaluation studies of contemporary policy practices, with explanatory discussions of trends in police research and the strengths and weaknesses of contemporary research.

Police for the Future by David H. Bayley Police for the Future, Paperback (March 1996)

This work is the result of David Bayley's study of policing in Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Japan, and the United States. Bayley set out to examine the police as a whole, to work out whether police do what the citizens of democratic societies require and expect, and to formulate a future policy for the role of police in crime prevention.

Forces of Order by David H. Bayley Forces of Order, Paperback (April 1991)

In sharp contrast to the United States, Japan has one of the lowest crime rates in the world and practically no police brutality or corruption. This work examines the reasons behind Japan's phenomenal success when it comes to public order. It analyzes Japan's record in policing and crime, the life of patrol officers and police as an institution.
