This analysis of law enforcement pioneer August Vollmer will define the important contributions to education and to professional police training he innovated at the beginning of the 20th century.

The end: force with patrols, well-trained officers, and a code of conduct for ethical and moral procedures, Vollmer’s influence leaves a profound legacy on police professionalism and the resulting social ramifications of his policies on the criminal justice system.
