Law enforcement is a nuanced subsystem of criminal justice that has seen a variety of issues, challenges, and perceptions through its history. This collection of articles moves through these topics, starting with the beginnings of the F.B.I. and law enforcement's role in enforcing civil rights, to the current issues of policing during the Black Lives Matter movement. Major developments in law enforcement are explored, such as the ending of Prohibition, the War on Drugs, and the Patriot Act, which all lead to the changing perspectives we have had of the people who protect us. Media literacy questions and terms help readers further analyze news coverage and reporting styles.
