My question is what are the advantages and disadvantages of unionized vs non-unionized police force.
This was one of the demands which was put forward by the Black Lives Movement. Below is an article where police unions were initially disbanded.
For example Camden NJ
So in 2013, the mayor and city council dissolved the local PD and signed an agreement for the county to provide shared services. The new county force is double the size of the old one, and officers almost exclusively patrol the city. (They were initially nonunion but have since unionized.)
This is a complex issue thus I am just looking to understand the pros and cons of the two different police structures.
