Williams took over the position as Chief of the Los Angeles Police Department after the Rodney King trial, coming from Philadelphia where he witnessed the devastating bombing of the MOVE headquarters as a young police officer. In this professional biography he discusses some of his most public cases, including those of Heidi Fleiss and O.J. Simpson, but more interestingly he describes his theories on community policing and how he implemented his ideas in both Philadelphia and Los Angeles. He offers practical advice on how individual citizens can organize and help police "take back their streets." Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
