This  book looks at police reform in Canada, arguing that no significant and  sustainable reform can occur until steps are taken to answer the  question of 'What exactly do we want police to do?' Adding challenge to  this is that setting boundaries on what we expect the police to do  requires grappling with the complex social problems we ask them to  resolve. In public policy language, these are ‘wicked problems’ – social  or cultural issues frequently seen as intractable. 

Authors  Huey, Ferguson, and Schulenberg, all policing scholars, draw on a  unique collection of data to explore these issues: over 20 years of  research (2000– 2021) ranging from in-depth interviews, surveys, and  field observations to document analysis and systematic social  observation. Pooling this data generates a national-level picture of  changes in the policing operational environment over these decades. This  book focuses on four particular wicked problems (mental health,  substance misuse, homelessness, missing persons) with causes and  potential preventative treatments that lie primarily outside the  criminal justice system and yet continue to be treated as 'policing  problems.' Bringing about changes in public policing requires changes in  public policy, and these are precisely the types of wicked problems  that need innovative policy solutions. 

This book is  suitable for a wide range of audiences within and outside Canada,  including law enforcement and community leaders; scholars and policy  experts who specialize in policing; students of criminal justice,  organizations, and management; and citizen-consumers of information  about policing.
