The Book You Need to Give Away

In keeping with the release of a free copy of “Arrested Development: A Veteran Police Chief Sounds Off About Protest, Racism and Corruption and the Seven Steps Necessary to Improve Our Nation’s Police,” I am putting out my earliest book (1982) “How to Rate Your Local Police” at no charge.

It was revised and more added in 2015 and aimed at being a “user’s guide” for civic leaders, governmental officials and concerned citizens. It is also a template for police leaders to evaluate their own organizations.

A number of police chiefs have told me over the years that they give a copy to their mayor, city manager, and city council members so that will begin to understand what makes for a good police department and police leader.

I hope you enjoy it and it helps you in your important work.

  1. Thanks Dave. Something I have maintained an interest in since many years ago you welcomed me into the profession. Those “standards” are which I look at Departments I may come into contact with today. I am proud to expond on those “standards” when social contacts become aware of my career and ask the inevitable questions.
