Special-Purpose Public Police.
Kakalik, James S.; Wildhorn, Sorrel
This report is the last in a series of five describing a 16-month study of the nature and extent of the police industry in the United States, its problems, its present regulation, and how the law impinges on it. In this volume, certain types of public forces not having general law-enforcement responsibilities are described, including reserve police, special-purpose federal forces, special local law-enforcement agencies, and campus police. These data provide a useful context for analyzing the role of private police. Federal guideline specifications for contract guarding services are included in the appendix. Documents in the series are announced in this issue as VT 016 622-VT 016 625. (AG)
