After seeing someone reference this book in another review, I thought I'd check it out. After reading the description here, I figured it would at least be worth it for the price considering it is text book sized but not $80-100.
After getting it, I have flown through 1/3 of it. It definitely reads like a text book but if the topic interests you (or should interest you ie: police officer and/or local union representative) I cannot recommend this book enough. This should be required reading for every new police officer by their respective associations and fraternal groups.
Even if getting nothing out of it, there are over 100 pages of "charts" that give examples of situations (discipline section for example). Some are quite obvious that yes, you will (and should) get fired, but others that are the gray area of. Is it something people have been suspended for, written up, demotion etc? Very good reference for what to expect.
