Law enforcement and drug courts

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Placing or replacing a law enforcement officer on a drug court team offers unique challenges and opportunities. Police administrators struggling with personnel shortages must justify deploying an officer to yet another outside project. Drug court directors worry about the acceptance of a gun-toting enforcer to a group of legal, social service, and treatment-oriented professionals. Police officers struggle with conflicting roles, ethics, and image, and everyone worries about the clients' reactions to a law enforcement officer whom many of them blame as the source of their problems.
