'Wherever there is power and money, there is always the risk of corruption. But everyone has a choice: to become involved or to take a stand against it.' Colin Dillon is an extraordinary man. He was the first Indigenous policeman in Australia. But that is actually a very small part of his story. He was also the first serving police officer to voluntarily appear before the Fitzgerald Commission of Inquiry in 1987 and give first-hand evidence of police corruption. He did this at a time when the Fitzgerald Inquiry was beginning and struggling for traction. His evidence at the Inquiry was instrumental in eventually sending some police, including Police Commissioner Terry Lewis, and politicians to prison. Revealing, powerful and uncompromising, this is the story of Colin Dillon's nearly 40 years in a police force rotten to the core. It describes the extraordinary range of criminal activities - drugs, gaming, SP bookmaking, brothels, vehicle theft - that were allowed to operate with impunity in return for bribes. It also tells of the high price an honest man and his family paid for his decision to break the code of silence.

Game warden Seeley Houk's mutilated body is found floating in the Mahoning River and rookie Pinkerton detective Dominick Prugitore intends to apprehend the culprits who murdered his friend. But first he must infiltrate an Italian community perched on the bluffs above the Mahoning River between New Castle and Youngstown, Ohio. This ramshackle collection of immigrant shantytowns provides cheap labor for quarries mining limestone for the steel mills in nearby Pittsburgh; the newspapers call it bloody Hillsville. Dominick's first order of business is to gain the trust of and join a secret, cutthroat association called The Black Hand, the dreaded Mafia of his Italian homeland. This is a world of secret codes, duels, vendettas, assassins, bizarre initiation rights, unbridled law enforcement, prejudice, bigotry, and the near slavery of immigrant laborers. The Black Hand is an organization held together by the Omerta, an oath of silence. Breaking the Omerta is the key to solving Houk's murder, but to disobey the Omerta carries a sentence of death, and Dominick must take the vow knowing he is duty bound to violate it.

Rising terrorism and advances in technology, along with new organizational strategies and investigative techniques, have stretched the traditional role of the police officer. Calls for strong, intelligence-driven, paramilitary policing juxtaposed with a demand for “softer” community policing, leave officers under increased pressure to be tough and resolute, yet compassionate, accountable, and adaptable. A measured analysis of these concerns is crucial to enable police officers to move forward in this increasingly conflicted world Drawn from the most important articles in Police Practice and Research, Contemporary Issues in Law Enforcement and Policing focuses on the most common issues affecting today’s officers. Enhanced with an introduction and conclusion to present and weigh the arguments and consider the pragmatic aspects and challenges posed, the articles are written by academics and practicing police officers from four countries to provide a balanced, international point of view. Assessing the driving forces behind contemporary policing, this book— · Addresses day-to-day policing and the stress found in both the daily grind and the division and stigmatization of certain branches of the force · Considers ethics, corruption, and the dangers of misplaced loyalties, highlighting Australian strategies to prevent misconduct · Provides a typology of terrorism based on scope and justification and discusses appropriate counterterrorism measures, as well as the impact on other policing priorities · Introduces a temporal component to the traditional spatial emphasis of crime mapping supported by a Madrid case study and its revealing failures · Discusses restorative policing as a fundamental shift in intervention objectives, from punishment or treatment to an emphasis on repairing harm An objective look at today’s trends, this book presents the most pertinent and talked-about issues in modern policing and provides perspective and direction for the future.

Two days after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the Japanese submarines are already sinking merchant ships off the Pacific Northwest. The citizens of San Francisco, Seattle and Portland, Oregon are in near panic, afraid an attack on the West Coast of the United States is imminent. To be certain he can trust the intelligence coming to him, Roosevelt needs a man he can trust for a secret mission. He chooses an unlikely candidate, Gaston Carson, a fourth year midshipman at the naval academy in Annapolis. His mission is to give Roosevelt firsthand accounts of enemy activity in the Pacific Northwest. Reluctantly, Gaston abandons his dream of one day commanding a ship, and drops out of the academy, to serve FDR. Gaston soon finds himself in the middle of a war unlike any he had trained for at the academy. Enemy submarines are operating off the coast of Oregon with impunity. We have no defense against them and no way of bringing the fight to them. Reluctant to move troops to protect the coastline, the Navy adopts a plan based on denial and deflection. Tragedies go unreported, news accounts are censored, and murders are covered up. As a civilian, Gaston must find a way to fight the enemy our government claims doesn't exist. Gaston is in the middle of a war of deceit and deception, and the enemy is both on dry land and at sea. As strange as the concept is, he realizes this is a war that cannot be won without a Code of Silence.
