Synopsis

In a time of intense public controversy and scrutiny over policing, it s essential to consider who are these men and women patrolling the streets of America? Is this discord deserved? Many would argue no, that the police are scapegoats for failures of society as President Obama recently stated. For a better understanding of these police officers, author and former cop, James Bultema, takes the reader on a photographic journey of America s city police departments. This historical tour begins in the 1850s and uses over 300 captivating photographs to give the reader some insight to our country s protectors. Police are at the front lines of history as it is being made and these riveting photographs showcase America s story as it s unfolding through officers in action. Through the magic of the camera lens, a vanished world lives again and invites the viewer to be part of a moment long ago and partner up with those brave souls who were and are The Protectors of a nation.
