Description - Los Angeles Police Department by Thomas G Hays

No police force in history has gained as much fame and notoriety as the Los Angeles Police Department. The acronym LAPD is practically synonymous with the idea of professional law enforcement. The men in blue who patrol Hollywood and the sprawling metropolis of L.A. have been investigated by screenwriters more times than vice versa. With more than 9,300 sworn officers today, the LAPD endures seemingly endless controversies and media circuses. But then there s the other side of L.A. s protective shield the story of the force s evolution alongside the spectacular growth of its unique melting-pot city. This book s rare and often never-before-published photographs focus on that side: the excitement, danger, tragedy, and comedy of everyday beat cops and workaday detectives with concessions to their limelight representations, including Jack Webb s Dragnet and Adam-12."
