Unfortunately, we have already gone beyond the point of simply building up numbers. Putting more police into a corrupt and ineffective system will only breed more corrupt and ineffective police. If efforts and resources are dedicated solely to expanding the police force, fewer will be available to reform the existing police. Police reforms, as mandated by the Supreme Court, are a must along with, if not prior to, expanding the police force. The system must be fixed immediately, or any expansion will end up doing more harm than good. We need more, and better, police.
