Survival Tactics for Field Contacts, Dangerous Calls, & Special Arrests
NEW! The key to police officer survival is doing the right things, the right way, under extreme stress, every time. Tactical Perfection for Street Cops teaches cops the lifesaving value of perfect repetition during any field situation, stop, radio call or encounter. Police training expert Steve Albrecht shares the secrets of veteran cops who have mastered streetwise ways to handle the variety of situations they face every shift: ringing alarms, domestic violence calls, loud parties, pursued felons, & the drugged, the ganged-up, the violent & the mentally ill. Albrecht breaks down the work into four categories:
* The Stops?Performing traffic stops, pedestrian field interviews, street gang contacts & pursuits in the patrol car & on foot.
* The Calls?Handling calls for domestic violence, robbery, burglary, prowler alerts & the latest & most tragic: school & workplace violence.
* Special Arrests?Dealing with hard-core professional crooks, transients, substance abusers & the mentally ill.
* Tools of the Trade?Searching, handcuffing & transporting suspects, & using nonlethal & lethal force.
