NYPD Confidential - An Inside Look at the New York Police Department.  The New York City police department is the largest and most powerful law enforcement organization in the country, if not the world. It is capable of both the greatest investigations and feats of bravery 
as well as the most flagrant of abuses, both internal and external. While the media chronicles the 
former, it often ignores or is unaware of the latter. NYPD Confidential, a weekly chronicle by police 
columnist Leonard Levitt, is an insider's view of the department that the public rarely sees.
