Borky's Beach is my second novel. It is a near-future post-apocalyptic utopia set in Los Angeles 2060 or so. I've never described it that way before, but this new context gives me the reason. I hope to get it published before everything in it actually happens. I've been told that even people who can travel into future multiverses and back can't tell exactly what I'm going to say, so I don't mind not being proprietary for the excerpts.
The basic idea is that the police in Los Angeles have been essentially split into two types. The Intervention Squads and the Interdiction Squads. Since the city and the people are generally peaceful, there isn't much use for what the police used to be. You see, everybody has survived a calamity of the first order, and right now all people want is to go home to bed, with each other, and watch TV. A lot of the TV they are watching is about their neighbors, broadcast realtime over the Eyeball Network, which is essentially an artifact of the panoptic surveillance setup by the government and turned over to the people. The people now have the ability to call the cops on each other at will, more or less, and it goes up for a vote in the community in which the offense takes place. 911 operators have been disintermediated.
When a call is made to the Eyeball Network, you are alerted, shown the video and you slide left to intervene and slide right to interdict. Shortly thereafter, either girl cops come out to wag a finger and send someone off to counseling and re-education or the boy cops come out and deliver a first rate beatdown and haul someone off to the work camp. The people, via their smartphones are judge and jury. Ties go to the runner.
Sure there are special cases where traditional cops and courts work the old fashioned way, but those happen in other jurisdictions.
