This paper examines the research on the costs and benefits of police body cameras, arguing that the devices can, if properly deployed and regulated, provide a valuable disincentive to police abuses as well as valuable evidence for punishing abuses when they occur. This paper also outlines a number of best practices designed to help law enforcement agencies at all levels address the privacy and fiscal issues associated with body cameras.

In 1986, the comic-book world experienced a profound paradigm shift, thanks to writer Alan Moore and artist Dave Gibbons. Gone were the long-held notions that crime-fighters always did the morally right thing for the intellectually right reason, that heroes and villains were rigidly defined constants, that good always prevailed over evil, and that happy endings were a foregone conclusion. In their place, there was Watchmen. With DC Comics soon to bring Watchmen's characters into its mainstream continuity, and with a Watchmen TV show reportedly in the works, it's time to reexamine all that has come before. Watching Time: The Unauthorized Watchmen Chronology contains: A detailed history encapsulating every known event from all corners of the Watchmen franchise, including not only the better-known tales, but also viral videos and websites, trading cards, unproduced scripts, and other ancillary sources. A mini-"crimeline" summarizing the crimes and heroics of masked crime-fighters and supervillains throughout Watchmen history. A foreword by noted comic book guru Brian Cronin, whose thousands of meticulously researched articles have enthralled comics fans for years. A nostalgic essay by Duy Tano, creator of the popular blog The Comics Cube, explaining why Watchmen is simultaneously dated and timeless. And a gallery showcasing nearly 250 covers from the Watchmen comics, trade-paperback collections, DVDs, Blu-rays, reference books, and video games. Designed both for fans new to Watchmen and for those who can identify Hooded Justice's parents, Ozymandias's four islands, Silk Spectre's favorite crooner, Mothman's family butler, and Rorschach's breakfast food of choice, Watching Time tells you everything you need to know about the history and characters of Alan Moore's Hugo Award-winning epic."

Just as men set watchmen and security guards over people, property, and other things, because of their value and worth, God also sets up watchmen over men. The souls of men are very important and precious in the Mind and Sight of God; and He will do a lot to save and preserve them from destruction. But God saves and preserves men through the men whom He has set up as watchmen over them. And if the watchmen do not do their works effectively, more souls will perish with the devil in the Lake of Fire. Speaking to Ezekiel, God said, “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore hear a Word from My Mouth, and....” Do you know that you are a watchman?

In this pioneering study, Sheilah Hamilton shows that, from the earliest days of British rule, the colonial administration introduced harsh legislation to control Chinese watchmen who were employed to protect the fledgling colony's property in the absence of an effective public police force. She examines the growth in different Hong Kong Government departments of what would now be regarded as 'hybrid' police and argues that the existence of such posts within the civil service resulted in greater social control of the local Chinese community at minimal extra expense. Amongst the topics of private security explored are: the impact of the few private security personnel engaged by local Chinese organizations such as the Nam Pak Hong, Tung Wah Hospital and Po Leung Kuk; the evolution of the District Watch Force from a force engaged in purely local security duties to an arm of the Hong Kong Government involved in non-security matters such as controversial sanitary inspections; and the unique system of village guards and scouts in the New Territories. A particular focus is the early maritime security problems and the internal security forces of Hong Kong's shipping companies. A final chapter compares the situation in Hong Kong and explores the similarities and differences with Shanghai during the period.

"Who Watches the Watchmen?" could hardly be more timely as we debate the recent leaking of the largest trove of documents in American history. The "WikiLeaks" case drives home the need for what this book lays out: an approach to protecting classified information that goes beyond law enforcement. Gary Ross' application of Rational Choice Theory codifies, organizes, and extends what many of us have been trying to do instinctively when dealing with unauthorized disclosures. "Watchmen" attempts to answer two significant, timely questions: What is the extent of the threat to national security posed by the media's disclosure of classified information? What are a journalist's motivations and justifications for publishing this information? The author concludes that the dilemma between withholding information in the interest of national security and the constitutional guarantee of a free press cannot be "solved", but can be better understood and more intelligently managed.

This work explores the graphic novel’s reception in both popular and scholarly arenas and how the conceptual relationship between images and words affects the reading experience. Other topics include heroism as a stereotype, the hero’s journey, the role of the narrator, and the way in which the graphic layout manipulates the reader’s perception of time and space.

In a CIA safe house, a reluctant interrogator and his subject find that they are the next targets on a ruthless assassin’s hit list Psychiatrist Louis Finney is still haunted by nightmares stemming from the work in mind control and psychological conditioning he helped to pioneer for the US government years ago. But when he is asked by his dying mentor to help with the questioning of Ali Zattout, an al-Qaeda operative, Finney finds he cannot refuse. Charismatic, intelligent, and unexpectedly cooperative, Zattout possesses information his masters in the Middle East cannot allow him to reveal. As Finney tries to determine if the terrorist is telling the truth or spinning a web of lies, a relentless killer closes in on the secret location where the two men are trapped together. Too late, Finney realizes that he is a pawn in a conspiracy whose dimensions stretch deep into the corridors of power. A provocative suspense story that peers into the dark corners of the war on terror, John Altman’s The Watchmen depicts the murky world of twenty-first-century espionage with thrilling style and fascinating psychological depth.
