'Law Enforcement Slogans' is the book form of an artwork of the same name which has been exhibited at London's Whitechapel Gallery as part of The London Open in 2012 and Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art in 2013 in the exhibition Other People's Problems: Conflicts and Paradoxes.
When exhibited the work is a floor to ceiling list of international law enforcement slogans paired with the respective agency name in order.
In book format each double page spread lists slogans by letter of the alphabet, with slogans on the left-hand page faced on the right by agency name. The first pages list slogans beginning with the letter A 'A Commitment To First Nations - Dakota Ojibway Police Service, Manitoba, Canada' to the final page which ends with 'Zero Deaths. Everyone Counts' from Alaska Bureau Of Highway Patrol, USA.
Both sets of text, slogan and agency name, are aligned towards the book gutter where the pages meet. This references how the work was shown at the Whitechapel Gallery and Herzliya, as a single column.
Law Enforcement Slogans was first shown in 2011 as a printed spreadsheet, forming part of a group taking place in a disused London office.
