According to the book description of Guardians of Angels: A History of the Los Angeles Police Department, "For 162 years, LAPD officers have pinned on a badge, holstered a gun and traveled the corridors of history, leaving behind the rich traditions that are todays LAPD. Guardians of Angels is a penetrating history of the Los Angeles Police Department since 1850. Thoroughly researched over eight years, containing scores of interviews and illustrated with hundreds of rare photographs, this book details how the department evolved from six officers administering frontier justice to todays high-tech professionals. It brings to life the accomplishments and disappointments of the men and women who unselfishly gave of themselves as the guardians of Angels."
