1559502096 Police officers are ever-popular subjects in the media. We see cop shows on TV, including both fictional detectives and reality-based shows such as Cops, in which TV crews accompany police officers on patrol, raids, and other activities. Police are also one of the hottest news items in radio and TV news programs. Each year brings a new crop of cop movies from Hollywood. Each year sees many crime novels appear, often written by people with an incomplete knowledge of their subject. They know how to construct a plot, but lack much of the basic knowledge to make their works factually accurate.Fiction is one thing: artistic license allow an author to weave a plot for dramatic effect. However, news reporting and documentaries are supposed to be straight facts. Often they're not, because both unconscious bias and editorial choices affect their accuracy. This is why, at a time when crime rates are declining in this country, the news media present the impression that we're being assailed by and unprecedented crime wave.There are many differences in the way law enforcement appears in the media, and the way it really is. This book explores the reasons why, and presents a picture of the way law enforcement really operates. It highlights the contrasts between the way cops are portrayed on TV and in the movies, and the way they work in real life. It shows why news reporting, which is supposed to be accurate and factual often is not.
