Which city has the most police officers that are polite, and hardly ever have "police brutality" incidents? Which city's cops tend to have more liberal positions on drug use, race, religion, etc and are clearly in the job to help people and keep the community a freindly place rather than to show off or go on a power trip?

This is counterintuitive, but I actually like the cops in Manhattan. New York City has so many cops (over 50,000) that they have to have call kinds of people. In other places, particularly small towns, police departments tends to be dominated by tough, ex-military types who are very intimidating and do seem to be on a power trip. Of course, I live in a very safe and affluent part of the city. People in the Bronx have a different perception of the NYPD.

The former police chief left to become an Episcopal priest. You can read here about the reforms he instituted while there.

I don't think many people can really compare cops from various cities.

The only person qualified to answer this would be someone who has lived in ghettos in multiple cities, because in my experience. Cops in nice neighborhoods are usually very nice and cordial.
But cops that patrol really bad neighborhoods can be downright abusive and have a tendency to harass/stalk/verbally and even physically attack people who aren't even criminals for no reason.

Affluent suburbs. The wealthy citizens of these towns expect service, and won't tolerate abuse or corruption.
