About the Detroit Police Department

The Detroit Police Department is the 10th largest police department in the nation.  It has over 3,700 sworn and civilian employees with an annual operating budget of over $414 million.  The Detroit Police Department is responsible for providing law enforcement service to more than 950,000 residents; over 10,000 businesses; and 258 schools in the city of Detroit, which spans 138.7 square miles.

Officer in Trouble is based on the real life experiences of its author, James Crawford, a veteran of the Detroit Police Department.  According to the book description, “an intense and committed man, Lieutenant James Crawford dedicated himself to making Detroit's finest one of the best departments in the nation.  His efforts, however, were not always appreciated and often he found himself on the wrong side of the political battlefields.  Against insurmountable odds, he continued to fight until succumbing to the realization that he might win a battle or two, but he could never win the war.”
