With Harr and Hess's "legalese-free" text, you'll gain a firm understanding of our often-complex Constitution and criminal justice system. To ground you in the laws that shape the system and our society, the authors present you with a clearly organized, 'bird's-eye" view of the topic, supported by over 200 summarized cases that introduce you to the most influential and pertinent cases. Harr and Hess also devote considerable time to an exploration of the Fourth and Fifth Amendments, relevant because of their application to issues relevant to criminal justice: reasonable search and seizure, double jeopardy, and testifying against oneself.

The late J. Scott Harr worked in various areas of the law for 30 years. He was the Chief Law Enforcement Officer and Public Safety Director for a suburb of the Twin Cities and served as a police officer for two other cities prior to that. In addition, he served as a firefighter and emergency medical technician. Licensed as a lawyer, police officer, and private investigator, he taught at Normandale Community College, Metropolitan State University, and Concordia University.

K�ren Matison Hess, PhD., (d. 2010) wrote extensively in law enforcement and criminal justice, gaining a respected reputation for the consistent pedagogical style around which she structured each textbook. She developed the original edition of MANAGEMENT AND SUPERVISION IN LAW ENFORCEMENT with Wayne Bennett and carried it through four very successful revisions; much of her work and influence remains unchanged in this new edition.
