Not illustrated. 1893 edition. Excerpt: ...a month. "In 1854 an entirely new life was opened to me by my election to the office of town constable. San Francisco at that time was divided into four townships, each having its own constable. I was elected constable of the first township on the Democratic ticket. In 1855 I was the only nominee elected on the same ticket. After 1856 I was reelected every two years on the old People's party ticket, and held the office of constahle till 1866, when I was elected Chief of Police. The duties of the constables were similar to the duties of the sheriff at present, only he was the officer of the justice, instead of the Superior Court. It was a moneyed office and the fees ran very high. There were months when I received over $1500.00 in fees. It cost $12.00 to serve a writ of attachment or a writ of replevin in those days. The officers wore no uniforms then, but along about 1860 gray uniforms came in. "In 1866 I was elected Chief of Police, that office being elective till 1878. I succeeded Dr. Burke, who had held the office nine years. When I took hold of the force there were but two police stations, one at the old City Hall, and the other at the corner of Pacific and Drumm streets, known as the Harbor Police Station. "The first matter of any great importance that I handled as Chief of Police was the quelling of the Potrero riots. It was in '66 and the cut was being made for the railroad in that locality.

The whites quit work immediately, and a few hours afterwards cars were upset, shanties were burning, men were raging, and law and order were thrown to the winds....

measurement of effective policing is based on a quick response to crime that has already been committed, the value of crime prevention has become an afterthought in America's police departments." "The middle chapters outline these issues and identify the strategies to improve police community relationships and adjust the measurements for effective policing. The concluding chapters identify strategies designed to facilitate police department organizational change. Using terms from the discipline of economics, a "micro" strategy and a "macro" strategy are outlined. A new theory of policing concludes the book." "The book is intended primarily as a textbook for criminal justice students, but it will also prove useful to police departments, police academies, city managers, and elected officials responsible for police administration and community safety." --Book Jacket.
