Public protests crushed by police officers who look and act more like robots than peacekeepers. Gassing and pepper-spraying nonviolent protesters. Racial profiling. Millions of dollars paid by cities each year to settle police misconduct cases. What is happening to our nation's police and what can we do about it? In this hard-hitting book, Couper outlines the seven steps police must take in order to improve and be partners in our great democracy. He speaks with authority, wisdom, and experience. DAVID C. COUPER Chief Couper led the Madison Police Department for over twenty years. During this time, the department successfully handled hundreds of public protests without incident, implemented a collaborative leadership style, and brought women and minorities into the department. Since his retirement he has been concerned about the militarization of our nation's police and their slow progress which has arrested their development. This is his third book on policing.
