Annotation: Recruitment efforts at several college campuses by David Durk, a sergeant with the New York City Police Department, are depicted in this film which emphasizes the rewards of police work for young people.
Abstract: In a speech before Princeton University students, Durk emphasizes that police officers can serve the cause of social justice by such actions as arresting the corrupt landlord. Durk also discusses constraints on police weapons use with students who object to guns and violence and confronts students at Amherst College, his alma mater, where police officers are seen as the enemy. The film indicates that Durk's recruitment efforts have been successful and that police work even appeals to students who have lived through the turmoil of the 1960's.
