The author wrote this book in response to a student having reminded him what he had long seen on the street as a police officer; “Everything that goes on crime-wise is linked to alcohol and drugs.” This work is presented through a series of 27 direct and to the point articles that discuss such topics as community members’ evaluation of a cross-section of the police, the examination of the ways in which street-smart police effectively communicate and relate with addicts, and in-depth examination of ways in which the police many take advantage of their knowledge of the 12-step models as a means of helping community members with addiction issues. This work also studies the ways in which working police officers themselves often come to drink alcoholically due to their violent and stressful workplace.
