Summary

This bibliography was compiled with two goals. The first goal is to provide police administrators and officers with an overview of the issues involved in developing guidelines for police discretion and a discussion of the options available. The second goal is to demonstrate the need for continuing dialogue and interaction between lawmakers, law enforcers and the community. The books, documents and journal articles in this bibliography are selected from the data base of the National Criminal Justice Reference Service. The entries are organized into three categories: (1) overview--general information on the nature of police discretion, discussion of the need for structuring police discretion, and selected programs that provide police with formal structuring for discretionary activities; (2) sanctions--restraints on discretionary actions, such as constitutional issues and legal sanctions as well as internal policies and procedures; (3) operational discretion--the exercise of discretionary initiatives and the options available to the individual police officer.
