This chapter discusses the establishment of the Sino-American Cooperative Organization (SACO) under the direction of General Dai Li and Admiral Mary Miles during the Pacific War and the role of August Vollmer in police professionalization in China. It also highlights Dai Li's take over the Zhejiang Police Academy in the summer of 1932 and Chiang Kai-shek's decision to create a central academy.
