The article evaluates the legal status of municipal police employee organizations in the U.S. in 1970 and discusses the assumptions on which public policy in this area is founded. There is a large number of police employee organizations existing in the nation. These organizations are known to be police-only local units. Most have remained independent or are local affiliates of police-only organizations while some have affiliated with organized labor. Regardless of their affiliation, a large number of these organizations function as unions.
