my Vision for police
“MY VISION FOR POLICE is that they can be fair, effective and humanitarian. They can protect our civil rights, work with a variety of people, and take arrested persons into custody with a minimum amount of force. This may differ quite radically from what you may think police should do… Most people don’t have a clue about police other than what they have seen on television and in the movies…
(From Arrested Development)
"I can’t help but think that one of the ways police throughout the world will be judged in the future is how well they perform as both peacekeeper and protector. How police respond to public protest is something everyone should be concerned. The goal in a free society is to select and train police who are educated, well-trained and led, restrained in their use of force, honest, courteous to every person, and closely in touch with the community they serve."
