Book ReviewsPolice Dogs in America Bureau of Government Research, by Samuel G. Chapman, The University of Oklahoma, 455 West Lindsey, Room 304, Norman, Oklahoma 73019; (Paperback, approximately $6.00 SAGE Publications, Inc.1980DOI: 10.1177/104398628000100407 Jack E. Whithouse Ph.D. Oliver E. Clark M.S. Considering the general low quality of law enforcement/criminal justice literature, Professor Chapman's book stands out like a bright shining star in an otherwise gray murky sky. This outstanding book identifies and examines the two district periods in using dogs in law enforcement in the United States. It painstakingly traces the dramatic expansion of police dog use. This factor has never before been covered in police literature. Importantly, Chapman thoroughly covers management problems involved with dog units, a point frequently overlooked in other less sophisticated texts. This section alone is worth the purchase price. A case study approach is used throughout, which gives the reader a highly accurate portrayal of the real world experiences of police agencies who have handled police dog programs. Professor Chapman has examined what was right and what went wrong in numerous cities. The chapter covering dogs and crowd control covers not only the practical pros and cons, but also the legalities involved.
