New Perspectives in Policing: Changing Environment for Policing, 1985-2008   [open pdf - 442KB]

"In 1967, the President's Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice published The Challenge of Crime in a Free Society. This publication is generally regarded as inaugurating the scientific study of the police in America in particular but also in other countries. Almost 20 years later, the John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, convened an Executive Session on the police (1985-1991) to examine the state of policing and to make recommendations for its improvement. Its approximately 30 participants were police executives and academic experts. Now, 20 years further on, the Kennedy School has again organized an Executive Session. Its purpose, like the first, is to combine professional with scholarly appraisals of the police and their contribution to public safety."
