"Addresses the growing division between members of the police and citizenry due to a number of factors, including the effects of some press members who are more interested in cultivating sensational stories of 'rogue' cops than in discovering and disseminating facts. Also, with the abundance of information--true and false--available on the Internet and the increasing utilization of social media, technology contributes to the rising friction between citizens and police"--Page 4 of cover.
