    This is an excellent article and is so on point. It's furher to be undrstood that many departments are going through some major changes i.e. personnel and politics. Many agencies are more into public oppinion and political views than they are about public safety, officer safety and moral.

    There's also a phenomena sweeping law enforcement agencies across the country where policing has become a double edged sword. Not only do you have to be concerned about dealing with the criminals on a daily basis in terms of lawsuits and being criminalized yourself but you have to be concerned about your department throwing you under the bus for discharging your duties as a police officer in the name of politics and promotional gains.
