  1. “The BUPD has had recent scandals, including officers’ guilty pleas to overtime fraud and prison for a longtime police union leader who sexually abused children. What steps should Cox take to change department culture, and can he sell reform to what’s been called a famously hidebound PD?” Is this a typo?

    1. This was a typo that has been fixed. The author meant to write BPD, not BUPD. We regret the error and thank you for pointing it out.
