Policing in Milwaukee: A Strategic History, by George L. Kelling

SKU: 9781626003002

During the first half of the 20th Century, the Milwaukee Police Department was one of the countrys premier police departments, widely acclaimed for its efficiency, honesty, and leadership. By the end of the century, it was torn by internal divisions, alienated from the minority community, and out of touch with the professional development of policing nationally.
Based on his over forty years of police observation, research, and consulting in dozens of police departments as well as his own personal and professional experiences in Milwaukee, Kelling tracks the evolution of the MPD through the 20th Century into the 21st and into the community policing era. 
Kelling has published at least two seminal works on policing- The Kansas City Preventive Patrol Experiment and The Newark Foot Patrol Experiment, but is perhaps best known for his 1982 Atlantic article: Broken Windows that he co-authored with James Q. Wilson and his 1996 book Fixing Broken Windows with Catherine M. Coles.
