    What powers do the police have? How should they use them? Harmon and Leo suggest the powers to arrest and interrogate impose severe costs on criminal suspects and undermine core criminal justice goals. Yankah argues these powers are limited by duties to promote the equal standing of all community members. Miller identifies localist governance duties requiring police to act as civic neighbors, supporting disparate local customs and traditions.
