Federal Law Enforcement: A Primer, serves to fill 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. 

Part II through Part V of the book examines 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 second edition updates the first throughout.

“I've been waiting 25 years for a book in this subject area or on this topic.” — John F. Doherty, Marist College
