How do police officers perceive the people of color who live in high-crime areas? How are they viewed by the communities that they police? Pegues explores these questions and more through interviews with not only police chiefs but also officers on the ground, both black and white. In addition he goes to the front lines of the debate as crime spikes in some of the nation's major cities. What he found will surprise you as police give a candid look at how their jobs have changed and become more dangerous.
Turning to possible solutions, the author summarizes the best recommendations from police chiefs, politicians, and activists. Listeners will not only be informed but learn what they can do about tensions with police in their communities.

Should have been called, Black is Great
The Author is clearly Black and sympathetic to Black Criminals. I have read DOJ reports also on cases he reported. They are completely different. The Majority of police he talks with are Black and also sympathetic. This book is so one sided. Makes me sick.
