Police in Trouble: Our Frightening Crisis in Law Enforcement
A former New Haven Connecticut police chief gives his views on the nature of police work, the political forces which influence police performance, and areas for reform. The author contends that organized crime and corrupt politicians handcuff the police more than court decisions can. Inadequate budgets coupled with impossible demands by the public result in angry and frustrated officers. Reform can not be concentrated on police alone but must be an effort to improve society.
