Item description for Community Relations Concepts by Denny F. Pace...
This widely used text is primarily an introductory or survey text for a lower-division college course. It was designed for easy, undergraduate student comprehension of the complex issue of community relations. This thoroughly updated text also serves effectively as a co-reader for more intensive courses at the graduate level. COMMUNITY RELATIONS CONCEPTS centers on the working practicalities of various effective community, ethnic group, and human and race relation programs. It shows readers how to use the community to effectively prevent crime. Included throughout the book are numerous tables, charts graphs, and illustrations that add interest and facilitate comprehension of the dilemma of crime and crime statistics analysis. Pace presents an overview of the various factors that comprise the relationships between the community and the criminal justice system. The author also examines some basic concepts of human relations. Various community relations scenarios now existing between the system and the community are discussed in considerable detail. The text additionally examines community misunderstandings and the lack of cooperation and mistrust that may paradoxically be generated by the system's efforts to make the community a safer place.
