Improving police and their accountability, and evaluating their leaders is a daunting task. But not an impossible one. I suggest you consult my new book for some ideas. I think it will help. Most folks know little about police and what they should expect from them. My book (Ā“Arrested DevelopmentĀ”) outlines these and other issues. Also, follow my blog at where I discuss even more issues facing those who police a democracy and how improvement can occur and be sustained!
