Chief David Couper led the Madison (Wisc) Police Department for over twenty years. During this time, the Madison police became a world-class model of democratic policing. During his tenure, Madison officers handled hundreds of public protests and demonstrations with having to resort to violence and they implemented a collaborative, employee and citizen-oriented leadership style that remains in place and a model for police departments today. Since Coupers retirement, he has continued to be concerned about the growing militarization of our nations police, corruption in the ranks of police, and an over-reliance on deadly force to get the job done. These and other actions he mentions in this book have literally arrested police development and the great potential they have to assure safe communities within the rule of law.
