A Laboratory Manual for Criminalistics: Introduction to Forensics for Law Enforcement Officers helps students develop a fundamental understanding of the process of forensics. The manual bridges the gap between learned material and practical application, challenging students to apply what they've learned in lectures to a laboratory environment. In Unit One, students are introduced to scientific and safety procedures, system conversions, substance separations, tools and devices used in the laboratory environment, and evidence evaluation and submission techniques. Unit Two explores firearms identification and labeling, ballistics and trace metal detection, serial number restoration, and crime scene sketching. Unit Three guides students through camera identification, labeling, and use. In the final unit, students learn about fingerprint classification and identification, as well as footprint evidence and casting techniques. The manual concludes with an optional project regarding serology and blood spatter analysis. The third edition of the manual features updated material in light of advances in technology and their impact on forensic procedures. Featuring straightforward and easy-to-understand instruction, A Laboratory Manual for Criminalistics is an ideal resource for courses in law enforcement and policing that include a laboratory component.

Designing and Conducting Research in Social Science, Health and Social Care
This book presents a novel and accessible way to learn about designing and conducting social research. Unlike traditional social research methods books, it provides a `real world' account of social researchers' experiences and learning achieved through conducting research in a variety of fields. It contains an eclectic collection of research and advice for conducting research from social researchers with varying backgrounds. Suggestions are made in relation to gaining access to research sites, conducting research on sensitive topics such as suicide, child sexual abuse and homelessness, ensuring the inclusive participation of participants with intellectual disabilities and children. Also included are discussions of conducting practitioner research, conducting research on individual change, psychoanalytically informed research, documentary research and post qualitative research. Other chapters focus on criticality in research on topics that have become politicised and moralised, ensuring that research conducted is credible and how knowledge in research is constructed through both the theoretical framework used and how it is conducted. Bringing together a diverse collection of social research projects, Designing and Conducting Research in Social Science, Health and Social Care will be of interest to students, educators and researchers in the social sciences and professionals in related areas.

Trauma and Resilience in the Lives of Contemporary Native Americans: Reclaiming our Balance, Restoring our Wellbeing
Indigenous Peoples around the world and our allies often reflect on the many challenges that continue to confront us, the reasons behind health, economic, and social disparities, and the best ways forward to a healthy future. This book draws on theoretical, conceptual, and evidence-based scholarship as well as interviews with scholars immersed in Indigenous wellbeing, to examine contemporary issues for Native Americans. It includes reflections on resilience as well as disparities. In recent decades, there has been increasing attention on how trauma, both historical and contemporary, shapes the lives of Native Americans. Indigenous scholars urge recognition of historical trauma as a framework for understanding contemporary health and social disparities. Accordingly, this book uses a trauma-informed lens to examine Native American issues with the understanding that even when not specifically seeking to address trauma directly, it is useful to understand that trauma is a common experience that can shape many aspects of life. Scholarship on trauma and trauma-informed care is integrated with scholarship on historical trauma, providing a framework for examining contemporary issues for Native American populations. It should be considered essential reading for all human service professionals working with Native American clients, as well as a core text for Native American studies and classes on trauma or diversity more generally.

The Handbook of Counseling and Emotions
The Handbook of Counseling and Emotions helps students discover greater levels of personal relevancy related to their introductory studies in counseling. This dynamic handbook also provides readers with an array of perspectives for understanding and addressing their emotions in daily life, ultimately promoting personal growth and assisting them in navigating everyday challenges. The handbook is divided into two parts. Part I explores how foundational counseling concepts can be incorporated into a frame of reference for daily life and one's emotional world. Students are exposed to theories and concepts that can readily be applied to the opportunities and challenges of daily life. Part II provides a comprehensive overview of emotions, including examinations of how emotions impact daily living, the science of emotions, emotions in communication, counseling strategies and emotions, addressing challenging emotions such as shame and guilt, and an in-depth analysis of anger and happiness. The Handbook of Counseling and Emotions was designed to serve as a companion text to the sixth edition of Michael Nystul's Introduction to Counseling: An Art and Science Perspective. It is well suited for foundational courses in counseling.

Social Housing in the Middle East: Architecture, Urban Development, and Transnational Modernity
As oil-rich countries in the Middle East are increasingly associated with soaring skyscrapers and modern architecture, attention is being diverted away from the pervasive struggles of social housing in those same urban settings. Social Housing in the Middle East traces the history of social housing-both gleaming postmodern projects and bare-bones urban housing structures-in an effort to provide a wider understanding of marginalized spaces and their impact on identities, communities, and class. While architects may have envisioned utopian or futuristic experiments, these buildings were often constructed with the knowledge and skill sets of local workers, and the housing was in turn adapted to suit the modern needs of residents. This tension between local needs and national aspirations are linked to issues of global importance, including security, migration, and refugee resettlement. The essays collected here consider how culture, faith, and politics influenced the solutions offered by social housing; they provide an insightful look at how social housing has evolved since the 19th century and how it will need to adapt to suit the 21st.

Author Janice Gasker brings a focus on self-reflection as the first stage in the planned change process and writes with the perspective that we consider work at all levels of practice simultaneously rather than in isolation. In accordance with the 2015 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) set forth by the Council of Social Work Education (CSWE), the planned change process is presented as dynamic and interactive, providing students with a clear understanding of how each stage of the planned change process can be utilized at any point when serving a client system. The text spotlights the distinctive characteristics of the worker - their values, attitudes, and experiences - that may influence client interaction. The text also includes case studies, collaborative learning exercises, and critical thinking questions to help students apply concepts to practice.

Police Unlimited: Policing, Migrants, and the Values of Bureaucracy
Police Unlimited is centred on the controversial idea that police forces are a focal point for conflict in modern society. Instead of emphasising the socially integrative function of police forces, the book links to a conflict model concerned with its socially divisive effects. Throughout the book, the consequences of this social division are discussed, using a detailed ethnographic study of the Dutch police as a starting point, and extending the analysis out to look at the global situation. The book is based on a five year ethnography exploring police discrimination in the Dutch police. It examines cases of conflict, both inside and outside the police station, thus covering interethnic tensions at work as well as hostility towards migrants observed while joining officers on patrol. The cases are discussed in light of the corroding public character of Dutch policing and the risks involved in terms of discrimination, and the arbitrary, or even privatized, use of power. Signalling an increased blurring of the private and public spheres in policing, the book warns of an unlimited police service that is no longer constrained by the public contours that delineate a legal bureaucracy. To develop a police anthropology, the ethnographic materials are consistently compared with other police ethnographies in the global north and global south . This comparative analysis points out that the demise of bureaucracy makes it increasingly difficult for police organizations across the globe to exclude politics, particularism and populism from their operations. Police Unlimited addresses the curious position of police organizations in the 21st century through the lens of a police anthropology concerned with deep-seated police discrimination across the world. In an age in which bureaucracy is considered to be the social evil of our time, Police Unlimited offers a controversial message: it is exactly the dehumanized and impersonal nature of bureaucracy that transforms policing into a neutral and fair practice.

Homeland Security and Criminal Justice: Five Years After 9/11
No event has shaped international events of recent years more than the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Tragically, less than four years later, Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast. In less than five years, the United States has experienced its worst terrorist attack and worst natural disaster, both in terms of the number of lives lost and in the costs needed for reconstruction. Both events have clearly indicated that there are tremendous threats to the security and well-being of Americans in their own country. Furthermore, these events have demonstrated the importance of criminal-justice agencies who are the first responders to threats to the United States. Since the threats of further terrorist attacks, natural disasters, epidemics, and cybercrime continue to lurk as potential dangers to the United States homeland, the American Criminal Justice System must be committed to mitigating, preparing for, responding to, and recovering from these tragic events. In addition, its commitment must be steadfast and ubiquitous. This highly topical book analyzes the nexus of homeland security to the discipline of criminal justice by addressing, in depth, issues and challenges facing criminal-justice students, practitioners, and faculty in the burgeoning field of homeland security. This book was previously published as a special issue of Criminal Justice Studies.

Police-Citizen Relations Across the World: Comparing sources and contexts of trust and legitimacy
Police-citizen relations are in the public spotlight following outbursts of anger and violence. Such clashes often happen as a response to fatal police shootings, racial or ethnic discrimination, or the mishandling of mass protests. But even in such cases, citizens' assessment of the police differs considerably across social groups. This raises the question of the sources and impediments of citizens' trust and support for police. Why are police-citizen relations much better in some countries than in others? Are police-minority relations doomed to be strained? And which police practices and policing policies generate trust and legitimacy? Research on police legitimacy has been centred on US experiences, and relied on procedural justice as the main theoretical approach. This book questions whether this approach is suitable and sufficient to understand public attitudes towards the police across different countries and regions of the world. This volume shows that the impact of macro-level conditions, of societal cleavages, and of state and political institutions on police-citizen relations has too often been neglected in contemporary research. Building on empirical studies from around the world as well as cross-national comparisons, this volume considerably expands current perspectives on the sources of police legitimacy and citizens' trust in the police. Combining the analysis of micro-level interactions with a perspective on the contextual framework and varying national conditions, the contributions to this book illustrate the strength of a broadened perspective and lead us to ask how specific national frameworks shape the experiences of policing.

Moral Issues in Intelligence-led Policing
The core baseline of Intelligence-led Policing is the aim of increasing efficiency and quality of police work, with a focus on crime analysis and intelligence methods as tools for informed and objective decisions both when conducting targeted, specialized operations and when setting strategic priorities. This book critically addresses the proliferation of intelligence logics within policing from a wide array of scholarly perspectives. It considers questions such as: How are precautionary logics becoming increasingly central in the dominant policing strategies? What kind of challenges will this move entail? What does the criminalization of preparatory acts mean for previous distinctions between crime prevention and crime detection? What are the predominant rationales behind the proactive use of covert cohesive measures in order to prevent attacks on national security? How are new technological measures, increased private partnerships and international cooperation challenging the core nature of police services as the main providers of public safety and security? This book offers new insights by exploring dilemmas, legal issues and questions raised by the use of new policing methods and the blurred and confrontational lines that can be observed between prevention, intelligence and investigation in police work.

Team Human
In one hundred lean and incisive statements, Douglas Rushkoff argues that we are essentially social creatures and that we achieve our greatest aspirations when we work together-not as individuals. Yet today society is threatened by a vast antihuman infrastructure that undermines our ability to connect. Money, once a means of exchange, is now a means of exploitation; education, conceived as a way to elevate the working class, has become another assembly line; and the internet has only further divided us into increasingly atomised and radicalised groups. Team Human delivers a call to arms. If we are to resist and survive these destructive forces, we must recognise that being human is a team sport. In Rushkoff's own words: Being social may be the whole point . Harnessing wide-ranging research on human evolution, biology and psychology, Rushkoff shows that when we work together we realise greater happiness, productivity and peace. If we can find others who understand this fundamental truth and reassert our humanity-together-we can make the world a better place to be human.

Its case studies describe the development of peacekeeping forces from Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland in the face of evolving threats to world security over the past sixty years, and how each country's reaction has differed. The conflicts covered in this study include the Cold War, the Balkan conflict, the first Gulf War and the Malawian ethnic conflict. Thus, it constitutes a contribution to the academic field in both a theoretical and an empirical sense. This book was previously published as a special issue of International Peacekeeping

Forgotten Heroes: A Record of Police Gallantry Awards in the Lancashire County Palatine
Forgotten Heroes brings together, for the first time, a detailed record of all gallantry awards granted by the nation's sovereign in recognition of the bravery of almost 400 police officers throughout the ancient Lancashire County Palatine. The Palatine jurisdiction remains that of the reigning sovereign, the Duke of Lancaster, and extends from Lake Windermere and Furness in the north to the River Mersey in the south, and from the west coast to the Pennines and Yorkshire Dales in the east. It includes the present-day Lancashire and those parts now within the administrative counties of Cheshire, Cumbria, and most of Greater Manchester and Merseyside. The book chronicles all awards since the institution of the King's Police Medal in 1909, when the nation began recognising bravery where police officers have risked their lives carrying out their duties. It covers more than a century of gallantry, commencing with the first award given in 1911 to a Preston officer, through to the present day. Gallantry awards are not readily given and represent conscious deeds and actions, involving risk of death or injury, which go above and beyond those expected. As well as courage displayed during the arrest of armed and dangerous criminals, incidents include the rescue of persons from fires, water, trapped underground, from high buildings and during wartime from bombed and burning buildings. Among the most poignant are the posthumous awards, which include Detective Inspector James O'Donnell, who died after being shot during the Brewery Street Siege in Blackburn in 1958. He was attempting to negotiate with the hostage taker who had earlier shot another officer, and after shooting Inspector O'Donnell the man killed his wife. Also featured is the incident involving Superintendent Gerald Irving Richardson, who was shot attempting to arrest one of a gang of armed robbers in Blackpool in 1971. Two officers had earlier been shot and wounded. Recognition of the bravery displayed that day saw the unprecedented number of two George Crosses and four George Medals, plus two British Empire Medals for Gallantry and a Queen's Commendation for Brave Conduct awarded to the officers involved. Superintendent Richardson is the highest ranking police officer to have been murdered on duty in modern times. In addition to retelling the circumstances of why the awards were made, Stephen Wilson provides information about their historical context, and has had privileged access to draw upon police records not normally available to the public to detail the incidents. He includes details of awards as published in the official London Gazette and, where available, biographical details and pictures of the officers, their medals and memorials; and in doing so ensures these brave officers are no longer `Forgotten Heroes'.

The Militarization of the Police? Ideology Versus Reality
Drawing from the author's fieldwork and his personal experiences in law enforcement, The Militarization of the Police? Ideology Versus Reality employs social science analysis to refute claims that the police in the United States have become militarized. Readers are exposed to research, analysis, and personal narratives that provide insight into the public perception of law enforcement and the behind-the-scenes realities that few experience outside of police work. The book begins by critically examining assertions by Peter Kraska, a professor, and by Radley Balko, a journalist, that the police have become militarized. Later chapters reveal the reality of narcotics raids and the problem with the War on Drugs, examine how the ACLU has criticized SWAT teams in the media, and explore the intertwining of race, poverty, and drugs. Readers gain new perspectives on the riots in Ferguson and in Baltimore through the eyes of law enforcement officials. The book additionally describes real-world examples of the use of excessive force and proposed non-violent alternatives. In employing a social science perspective to the complexities of law enforcement in modern society, The Militarization of the Police? Ideology Versus Reality, is an ideal text for courses in criminal justice, law enforcement, and social science.
