Abstract
According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics (2007), there are approximately 732,000 sworn law enforcement officers in the United States. These officers are tasked with numerous objectives that affect the lives of almost all Americans, from directing traffic and patrolling neighborhoods to ensuring public safety and arresting those suspected of committing crimes. As a result of their widespread authority, it is important for the public to know what rules and regulations govern law enforcement officers’ actions. A large number of publications center on policing as a discipline, but in Briefs of Leading Cases in Law Enforcement, del Carmen and Walker specifically focus on the relevant Supreme Court case decisions that effect the day-to-day operations of law enforcement.
