Klein, well-known criminologist and police consultant, tells the story of a gang cop who is deeply engaged in battling his street gang opponents. The author reveals the dangers of police elite units when a 'tough cop' begins to rationalize the use of police violence and corruption. Klein assesses the training and skills of the gang cop, and current gaps in our knowledge of street gangs. This book is for law enforcement personnel, lawyers, criminologists, and community and governmental agencies concerned with the proliferation of gangs in America's towns.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Malcolm Klein is the preeminent gang researcher of our time. His new book Gang Cop is a revealing and compelling look inside the world of the police gang unit officer. Klein not only offers readers a colorful and unforgettable depiction of gang cops and the world in which they work and live, but he also provides readers with a scholarly examination of gangs and gang crime. -- Charles Katz, Arizona State University
A powerful new book. . . . Malcolm Klein draws on forty years of research on gangs, law enforcement, and intervention policy. He demonstrates the ways in which the police are organized, trained, and isolated to respond to gangs, and where it can and has gone wrong. -- Scott H. Decker, University of Missouri, St. Louis
