Format: Paperback
I am a graduate of a criminal justice program and was recently was hired by a small city department and expect to head off to the academy soon. I came across this book and decided to buy a copy to further prepare myself for the job. Given my interest in law enforcement I found it very interesting and I think it will be a good preparation for both what I will learn "hands-on" at the academy and what I will actually face as a police officer. Each chapter talks about a part of the police officer's job like responding to alarms, filing reports, and dealing with the community. A large section of the book is dedicated to traffic stops and related situations, such as searches, sobriety tests, etc., which I thought was good because it is what a lot of officers do in most parts of the country. For each topic, there are several scenarios with questions asking what you would do. Theses are probably meant for a criminal justice class with others to discuss answers with, but even on my own I thought they were fun to read and a way of envisioning what I would do the first time I face something similar. Overall, I would recommend this book to anybody who wants to be or is going to be a police officer. It offers a good look at what situations officers really face and the scenarios even give you a preview of the important decisions officers have to make every day.

Rob is one of the best minds in realistic police training and testing. I have attended four of his trainings. This book is a must read for all who want to become police officers and a great review for those of us who are on the job.

Format: Paperback
I Really liked this book, it explained pretty much everything there is to explain. It also includes interactive scnearios which work better if you are in a class, or a group setting. The only thing about it I wanted more of was Details, I expected it to be in depth but all it did was basiclly scratch the surface. But its still Good.

bought this so my son and new reserve would see what we do. this book is crap.. you can learn more from cops the show..... does not explain method or reason behind anything. says patrol vehicle is for hauling 2 or more officers and can hold up to 4 officers or do transport of the arrested... really never would have known that unless I read the book.. dont buy is a waste of money..
