"Many public health readers of From Enforcers to Guardians will come away with the centrality of better data to improve transparency and accountability. This book meets a critical need that sets public health on a path to fewer lives cut short, the goal of our field. It also creates room for additional conversations to address what is still missing. That is why it is such an important book."

"This book is an important contribution to understanding excessive and brutal policing as a social determinant of health."

"There is a huge gap in the literature on this very timely topic. This book provides a conceptual and empirical overview that can shape discourse and stimulate future research. Well written and logical, this book should become part of the curriculum for courses in public health related to violence and community-based participatory work, as well as criminology and sociology courses. It will be of interest to public policy and administration schools as well."

"A thoughtful, incisive public health primer on the deeply entrenched and damaging practice of police brutality."
