Law Enforcement Patrol Operations Description

This sixth edition of Law Enforcement Patrol Operations provides a comprehensive resource for study of police patrol procedures, based on specific practices that have proven effective. Chapters 1 and 2 were updated to include current data and criteria relative to modern-day law enforcement. The Code of Ethics was expanded to include new language as suggested by the Association of Chiefs of Police. In addition, the book includes sections on identity crime and offering assistance to crime vic-tims. Peace officers on patrol must understand the theory of police patrol as well as be able to implement field-tested procedures and techniques to meet the demands of modern, professional law enforcement. And because each field encounter is unique, this text should help officers ensure their safety and correctly adapt to any situation by presenting the safe, sound principles of law enforcement field operations with which officers can start any encounter.
Materials in this sixth edition logically follow the flow of field operations, starting with the philosophy regarding patrol and an overview of police systems and procedures. Development of observation and communication skills along with preparation for patrol is fundamental to patrol operations. The text then introduces routine patrol activities that no officer should ever treat as routine in daily operations. Vehicle pullovers, crimes in progress, and preliminary patrol investigations are logical progressions of routine patrol. Arrest and use of force (including prisoner restraint and search), followed by interviewing and interrogation techniques, are logical outcomes of police investigation. Handling unusual occurrences as well as crowd control and riot control are additional patrol activities.
Concisely written in everyday, down-to-earth, nontechnical language, this text addresses the patrol officer as a responsible, thinking, influential person who exercises important discretion in discharging daily duties. The book is a valuable resource for reference and thoughtful review of some main concerns in law enforcement; for use in colleges, universities, and academies; and for self-education by law enforcement personnel
