Summary note
In today's modern era, it has never been more crucial to ensure the safety of vulnerable populations, in particular Black individuals, in custody. Further study is required to implement best practices and strategies that improve protection. Comparing Black Deaths in Custody, Police Brutality, and Social Justice Solutions describes the actions that lead to the death of Black people while they are in the process of being detained by a law enforcement agent or are already detained. This publication focuses on three core countries, America, Australia, and South Africa, where Black deaths in custody appear to occur at higher rates. Covering key topics such as racism, prejudice, and slavery, this reference work is ideal for industry professionals, law enforcement officers, government officials, policymakers, researchers, scholars, academicians, practitioners, instructors, and students.
