Calls for Police Assistance: Consumer Demands for Governmental Service
Bercal, Thomas E.
Amer Behav Sci, 13, 5,6, 681-692, May-Aug '70
Viewing the police as a para-military organization primarily concerned with the control and prevention of crime is inconsistent with the estimate that only 20 percent of police activity is crime related. This study is based on analyses of calls for assistance in 1968 in St. Louis, Detroit, and New York. (DB)
