Editorial Reviews

Review

A needed and invaluable source of practical, insightful information for both survivors ... and the professionals who work with them. -- Jean Lewis, Parents of Murdered Children, Inc.

Only someone who has experienced personal tragedy could be so effective in providing this kind of support and guidance. -- Bob Wallace, Chief of Police Magazine

From the Publisher

"What to do When the Police Leave" is currently being used by victim assistance programs, police departments, funeral homes, and clergy across the United States and Canada. The author's voice is that of one victim speaking directly to another with honesty and authority on a subject in which he has become an unwilling expert.

Tragedy is treated with compassion, determinatino, and above all, hope. Inspirational messages and writings break up the text, giving pause for reflection. Jenkins repeatedly identifies with the reader, sharing a mutual hope for progress and recovery. Suitable for people of all faiths, and general enough to apply to a variety of types of losses, "What to do When the Police Leave" definitively answers that question which every family asks following a death notification, "What do we do now?" --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have never found another book like this one. It provides a step by step guide of what to do and explains how you'll feel after a traumatic loss like homicide or suicide. But mostly it addresses how to handle the police, detectives, media, and others after such a loss. I cried through every page as it as if it was written from my own heart. You truly can't know what it's like to experience such an event until you do and this author has. This book should be required reading for every family member as they leave the police station after such an event. This book fills a void in the legal system, which is what you should do after the police leave.

Format: Paperback
There are many books that talk about grief, but this book is a practical help and guide for people who find themselves suddenly thrust into the complicated situations that come from the sudden loss of a loved one due to murder or suicide. It talks plainly about dealing with the legal system, the police, the media, etc. I have kept a copy on hand for years and sadly, just had to give one to a friend of mine whose brother was murdered. She has found it to be eminently helpful in the midst of a confusing and difficult time.
