I collaborated with Steven on this book this year to bring his vision to the forefront of the discussion on how police must evolve to address emerging threats from within communities and within the profession. After all, policing in the United States has reached a crisis point. The proliferation of body cameras and amateur video captures of police confrontations, a new era of domestic terrorism, and the challenges of policing an increasingly diverse population have all played a part in moving the crisis forward.
This book examines the crisis from both the perspective of the police and the diverse communities they serve, including: why police departments are failing to serve their communities; what can be done to stop the violence in the aftermath of a crisis like a police use of force incident; and how law enforcement must evolve to address the changing needs of troubled communities today.
