Federal Law Enforcement: A Primer fills a gap in criminal justice literature by examining federal law enforcement from both historical and contemporary perspectives.

Part I of the book considers the history of federal law enforcement in the United States as well as its current status within the broader American law enforcement community. Debate over the reach and scope of federal law enforcement is also addressed. Parts II through V of the book examine the history, organization, personnel, and function of over 20 specific federal law enforcement agencies. Finally, Part VI of the book addresses careers within, and the future of, federal law enforcement in the United States.

The third edition provides updated information throughout, includes new information about special counsels, and adds a new chapter covering federal Probation and Pretrial Services.
