Papers presented at the 13th Annual Meeting of the International Police Executive Symposium held in Ayvalik, Turkey, in 2006.

Every year, esteemed scholars and practitioners meet at the International Police Executive Symposium to discuss contemporary issues in policing and share ideas about effective strategies in their jurisdictions. Drawn from the proceedings at the Thirteenth Annual Meeting held in Turkey and updated with new developments since the conference, Strategic Responses to Crime: Thinking Locally, Acting Globally describes how local police agencies are addressing issues of crime that have global implications.

Topics discussed include: Community policing and police innovations such as safety and security councils ; Performance management systems in police organizations ; Efforts to combat drug cultivation and trafficking ; International terrorism and individuals’ motivations for joining terrorist organizations ; Approaches for handling and policing the mentally ill in accordance with human rights concerns ; Cybercrime and child sexual abuse ; Crime scene assessment, information gathering, and case development and management ; Jurisprudence, law, and empirical research related to racial profiling in the United States ; Computer technology and crime analysis tools and models ; Emerging police administration strategies.
Combining empirical evidence from scholarly studies with in-the-trenches experience from practitioners, this volume assembles critical insight into a range of issues relevant to policing in the 21st century.
