Long DescriptionPolice do not and cannot prevent crime. This alarming thesis is explored by David Bayley, one of the most prolific and internationally renowned authorities on criminal justice and policing, in Police for the Future. Providing a systematic assessment of the performance of the police institution as a whole in preventing crime, the study is based on exhaustive research, interviews, and first hand observation in five countries--Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Japan, and the United States. It analyzes what police are accomplishing in modern democratic societies, and asks whether police organizations are using their resources effectively to prevent crime. Bayley assesses the impediments to effective crime prevention, describes the most promising reforms currently being tested by the police, and analyzes the choices that modern societies have with respect to creating truly effective police forces. He concludes with a blueprint for the creation of police forces that can live up to their promise to reduce crime and enhance public safety. Written for both the general public and the specialist in criminal justice, Police for the Future offers a unique multinational perspective on one of society's most basic institutions.

By claiming your products, you gain a great deal of control over your products and company information. When you make changes, they don't need to be verified manually and other users cannot make any changes to your data.

Claiming your products is a rather simple process but it does involve a few steps. You simply need to give us a list of your products but then you need to verify your claim by entering a code we send to your email.

You also get to enter information about your company on the claim page. If you have multiple companies, you can control them all on your profile page once they are verified.

After you make your initial claim, we perform some processing on our side. Once the claim process is complete, you get full control over all of your products and company information. You get to control your product details and images. You can modify the contact information for your company and upload a company logo.

To get started with the process, you can search for one of your products and click the CLAIM link found at the bottom of the product information block. You can also go directly to the CLAIM PAGE. Once on that page, simply follow the on screen instructions to complete the claim process.

If you want to send us data about your products instead of simply claiming existing products or entering new information by hand, you can always send us a data file and we can import it for you.
