Sinopsis: Police work is one of the most important developments of civilization. The detection and prevention of crime is not an exact science. It is an art. It is important that constant training and education continue. A policeman is only a citizen who has chosen to be the servant of the public, one having no more and no less rights than any other citizen. We maintain that the more intelligent he is, and the more he knows of police work, the less well he be an autocrat. He will realize his limitations, will know that a democracy is only as strong as its majority, and that in our country government is with and by the consent of the governed. He will realize that he must work along prescribed lines, that he cannot be used by any persons or organizations to coerce a citizen, or to settle personal grievances, or to enforce private ideas of morality, but should give the maximum of protection with the minimum interference with the lawful rights of a citizen. Autocrat - one who rules without restriction. - George Fletcher Chandler - 1922
