Thank you Librarian Beth Hansen Shaw for bringing the following Reference Books to our attention.
World Encyclopedia of Police Forces and Correctional Systems

Belarus goes on for 10 pages, while the Bahamas gets only 2 pages. The bibliographies are also uneven, but it still is a pretty good starting point.
