Lines of Defense
Police Ideology and the Constitution
by Chuck Klein
Part of protecting society is earning the trust and respect of its citizens. However, the public’s confidence in the police has been fading. Highly publicized incidents and accusations of profiling continue to erode the public’s trust.
In Lines of Defense: Police Ideology and the Constitution, the author discusses the issues of what police work once was, what it is today and what it needs to become in the future. He addresses the issues of trust and ethics and the roles they play in law enforcement.
And in as much as the man or woman who takes the oath of a police officer to support the U.S. Constitution must be familiar with the document upon which our form of government is founded and our laws are based, the author has included a second part to his manual, which presents you with the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution and its Amendments. He provides annotations to all three documents, explaining both the meaning and historical reasons for each section.
The book includes the following chapters:
- Code of Ethics
- The Fourth Branch of Government
- Extrapolation and Projectors
- Police Officers: Our Last Line of Defense
- Evolution of Rights and Wrongs
- The Declaration of Independence
- Constitution, Preamble and Articles
- Amendments to the Constitution
- The Pledge of Allegiance
