Police Work is an eloquent, positive, grittily realistic portrait of the life of big-city policemen.Through 124 black-and-white photographs, Leonard Freed has captured all the power, irony, compassion, violence, rewards and revulsions of police work. Freed spent many months with policemen on their beats, watching ; taking photographs ; building a story about the police that shows the isolation, the complexity, the camaraderie, the many dimensions of their work and what it takes to be a "good cop" - intelligence, nerve, understanding, the ability to make lightning decisions of life-and-death proportions. Short, understated captions accompany some of the photographs, but the story is in the images : neighborhood life ; stalking suspects ; runaways ; hustlers ; derelicts ; demonstrators ; drug busts ; prison ; kids...

Moving, devastating, sharp, tragic, at times almost overwhelming, here is an unparalleled view of police and work and life.
