Description:

Book is in very good condition. No writing or markings anywhere except previous owners inscription on very first page. With its dust jacket which is very clean with no rips or tears. The author was a member of the O.P.P. for over 27 years, and here writes the history of the beginnings of the OPP in 1909. Organized by a number of policemen to protect the province and its citizens who lived in dread of " impertinent, lazy, thieving, and barn-burning tramps " and were unable to travel from place to place without "the almost constant danger of coming into collision with city toughs". The OPP has emerged today as one of the finest, best equipped, and mos brilliantly led police forces in the world. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Queen's Printer, Toronto, 1984. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good+. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. 668 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs. "The OPP came into existence (in 1909) with a total strength of fifty-one men, of whom forty-four were constables deployed across the vast province. By the end of World War I in 1918, only twenty-six constables were still serving with the force, but returning veterans were sought for enlistment with the provincials and the force grew, assuming every-increasing responsibilities for policing the province. Liquor law enforcement during the rumrunning days of the 1920s, and the creation of a highway patrol in 1930 played major parts in the evolution of the provincial police. The story of the OPP includes tales of murder, sabotage, corruption, and political influences. There were relief expeditions to the north in the wake of devastating forest fires, and confrontations with hoboes, harvesters, and loafers. Violent crimes, jail-breaks, war services, and industrial disputes all had to be contended with, and not a few members of the provincial police were killed in the performance of their duties over the years. 'Hepburn's Private Army' and 'Drew's Gestapo' gave rise to much criticism of the provincials, and embarrassing Royal Commissions did little to enhance the image or the morale of Ontario's finest. Despite the challenges to its continued existence, the OPP has emerged today as one of the finest, best equipped, and most brilliantly led police forces in the world." Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top edge. Bookseller Inventory # 28207
