EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION SKILLS FOR CRIMINAL JUSTICE PROFESSIONALS is a modern approach to the standard texts in this market. Going beyond merely addressing the various reports necessary for police work, this book also addresses issues that have changed the way police work and challenges that have affected police in recent years: how to deal with diverse populations, dealing with the media, and speech communication skills handled through a wide range of media. By emphasizing that police should be professional representatives of the community, Grubb and Hemby change the nature of this course from pedantic to professional.
