Book review: Police in Africa

This link is a “capsule review” of a new book, Police in Africa: The Street Level View. It notes the ongoing effects of colonialism, surprisingly strong norms of professionalism, and daunting challenges facing operational police. Bribery and corruption remain common, and “the behavior of individual police officers is increasingly shaped by worries that people will complain about them on local radio stations.”
