Esto trae consejo una mezcla de atracción y rechazo, situación que se ha ido polarizando en los últimos años debido a las cada vez más comunes evidencias de que existe otro orden, uno que se edifica sobre l. a. ilegalidad y los angeles impunidad y que ataca directamente el sentido de los angeles policía: ser garante de l. a. ley y el orden, contribuir a los angeles resolución de conflictos que aquejan a los ciudadanos y proteger el interés basic de los angeles colectividad.

En los angeles voz de sus protagonistas –los policías preventivos de Guadalajara-, esta obra trasciende los angeles geografía y conforma un testimonio que ayuda a entender las luces y las oscuridades de unos personajes omnipresentes, esenciales en las sociedades contemporáneas.
