After three decades of increased safety, crime is once again on the rise across the United States--and the topic is quickly becoming one of great political importance.

Having lead the police force in three major American cities (Boston, NYC and Los Angeles), Bill Bratton is the perfect person to talk to regarding any effort to reverse this troubling trend.

In his new book, "THE PROFESSION A Memoir of Community, Race, and the Arc of Policing in America", Bratton reflects on his law enforcement experiences, particularly in regards to policies such as "Stop and Frisk" and "Broken Windows",

And during his appearance on The Armstrong & Getty Show, Bratton offers his perspective on why some well intentioned (but clearly flawed) law enforcement policies have lead to our current condition.
