From the Back Cover:

Described as a "must read" for police officers and prospective candidates for law enforcement, this book invites readers to step back and examine their views and attitudes from a different perspective. In the process of defining and discussing the cultural underpinnings of the criminal justice community, the author addresses topics of special importance including sources of tension in police-citizen interactions; the challenges of law enforcement in a democratic society; policing as a "noble" profession; and police-community relations in a "Post 9/11 " environment.
