About the book
Police represents law enforcement officers who are responsible for protecting public order and citizens' lives, properties, fundamental rights, and freedoms.

Throughout history, many civilizations have similar formations to today's police organization. During Roman Empire, there were officials called the Irenarchs, observing the implementation of rituals, and pursuing social discipline and outlaws. The first examples of the police in the modern sense were the London Maritime Police, Glasgow, Scotland and Paris Police Departments which emerged in the 1800s. Founded in 1829, the London Metropolitan Police Organization is the first police organization to put forward preventive policing in addition to combating crime. This book aims to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of police education, police organisations, police working conditions, police equipment, police health, and police performance management.
