One of the more important functions police need to do in a society is to be both peacekeeper and protector. How police respond to public protest is something in which we all should be concerned. For more on this and other important police improvement issues, see “Arrested Development: A Veteran Police Chief Sounds Off About Protest, Racism, Corruption and the Seven Steps Necessary to Improve Our Nation’s Police”( ). And my blog at where other current police improvement issues are discussed. The goal in a free society is to have great police. Great police are police who are well-trained and led, restrained in their use of force, honest, and courteous to every person.
