Legal philosophy traditionally focuses on the courts, but not on the police - despite the fact that what the police do has considerable implications for what we understand law to be. Police writers in turn often overlook the subject of philosophy, and how philosophy can inform particular issues of police practice. In The Jurisprudence of Police, Thomas Vincent Svogun closes this gap by developing a new philosophy of law in tandem with a new theory of law enforcement, thus providing the basis for a general unified theory of law that reconciles the work of legislators and judges with the work of police. Much attention is devoted to the shift in the police paradigm from technically oriented professional law enforcement to problem-oriented community policing. This book integrates literature in legal philosophy and police theory to elaborate new integrative theory, introduce new concepts, and make recommendations for future public policy.
