This book is designed and intended to help the police officer survive. It provides a general orientation for survival, and details the specifics the intelligent police professional must master in order to survive the many types of potentially risky situations he will be exposed to over a career. The book details everything from searching a prisoner to searching a building; arresting a 300-pound outlaw biker or a surly teenager. The volume is painstakingly thorough in its approach to officer survival. The officer who reads it can afford to be no less thorough as he or she applies its practical information to the street situations they will encounter. Also discussed are personal preparations for risk reduction, including mental attitude as well as physical skills and training. Some 'special' dangers are also discussed, including off-duty confrontations and the emotional hazards of the job. The practical police officer should find the book's layout of particular value. At the end of each vital chapter, a quick and concise 'Risk Reduction Checklist' is presented. These chapter summaries are excellent for review and merit rereading by the police professional intent on surviving to a healthy retirement. An Appendix has been included containing informative accounts of police deaths, culled from the 'Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted' report put together by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Other accounts are also to be found at the end of each chapter. Each one makes a point by way of grim example, yet every tragedy described can help to save the life of an alert police reader who might otherwise have become one more statistic.

Law enforcement is one of the most hazardous occupations there are in this country. A great many questionable encounters between police officers and members of the community they serve that have given rise to the current 'Black Lives Matter' movement arose out of sense of personal peril on the part of the officer. Now in a newly revised and updated third edition, High-Risk Patrol: Reducing the Danger to You by Gerald W. Garner covers a compendium of relevant issues including an examination of the training and culture of law enforcement; personal preparation for risk; vehicle stops and contacts; defusing disturbances; domestic violence; dealing with people under the influence of alcohol or narcotics; 'suspicious persons incidents'; burglaries and structure searches; barricades and hostage takers; 'man with a gun' calls; vehicle pursuits; ambush tactics; mentally ill persons; off-duty confrontations; prisoner control and transfers; terrorist threats; and accidents. Of special note is the chapter on 'Reducing Your Emotional Risks'. Very highly recommended as a police academy textbook, the general public would be well served by community libraries having a copy of High-Risk Patrol being available to the general public they serve. --The Midwest Book Review/Library Bookwatch: September 2016/TheJobs/Careers Shelf
