Since the American Bar Foundation Survey of the Administration of Criminal Justice - "discovered" the phenomenon of discretion in criminal justice, it has become something of a truism that the administration of criminal justice in the United States consists of a series of discretionary decisions by officials in regard to police discretion, bail, plea bargaining and sentencing.
This book is a history of the attempts over the past forty years to control these discretionary powers in the criminal justice system.
Walker brings together an enormous literature in a synthesis that will be of great value to professionals, reformers and students of the criminal justice system. The book argues that all four of these elements must be addressed to achieve a full and self-sustaining accountability in a law enforcement agency. Police Accountability is the best single resource on citizen oversight of the police or what some people call civilian review.
It devotes an entire chapter to the history of citizen oversight, and then examines in detail the two basic models of oversight : citizen review of complaints model and the police auditor model. The book examines the pros and cons on citizen oversight itself, and then on the two models of oversight. Samuel Walker and Charles M. The Police in America has been the best-selling text book on the police since it was first published in Now in its 9th edition, it provides a comprehensive, critical picture of all the issues related to policing in America.
