The Police Officers on Patrol Series: The Foot Chase by the Mexican Border! is a children's book of a series geared toward children ranging from ages of 4 to 8. The author, Shaun Sundahl--a parent, educator, and a police officer--originally intended on publishing these books for the children or close relatives of law enforcement officers; however, he soon realized that any child interested in learning about the adventures of police officers will benefit from his book.-The Foot Chase by the Mexican Border! is a book based on the real work of police officers assigned to a small town in the United States bordering Mexico. Yes, this town actually exists and is located in the Imperial County of California, U.S.A.! So, Bobby the Bad Guy is out and about, ready to test the officers' patience, skills, and abilities! Will he be captured? Will there be a foot chase? To find answers, let's read the book to find out! Your child reader is even given several EXCITING opportunities to "help" the officers! The adult reader and child will soon learn that Shaun's books are distinguished from other books in the same category. Most other books are not written by a police officer. Since a police officer is authoring and publishing these books, children learn about REAL events, REAL equipment, REAL tactics, REAL crime solving strategies, and REAL pursuit intervention techniques. Further, several of the characters in each book have name tags and badge numbers. All main characters in the Police Officers on Patrol Series are named and illustrated after REAL law enforcement officers, and are designed for the child to understand and appreciate the officer's work. During the book's development, Shaun worked closely with his illustrator to develop characters and actions that are as realistic as possible and that are "child-friendly."

Reproducing Order

This book reveals that the police are not mere 'referees' of our legal lives, blowing the whistle on our infractions. They are censors of certain types of possibly wrong actions.

Professor Ericson and his colleagues followed the work of patrol officers in a large Canadian regional police force. From their direct observations comes a wealth of information, quantitatively assembled and qualitatively discussed, with insights into the nature of policing. This book reveals that the police are not mere 'referees' of our legal lives, blowing the whistle on our infractions. They are censors of certain types of possibly wrong actions. They are selective in their invocation of criminal law and use the law artfully to restore settings to orderliness. Ericson emphasizes the routine manner in which the patrol officer intervenes and gains compliance fron the citizenry. He demonstrates that when the criminal process is invoked, the police maintain fundamental control over the court outcome. Using these findings, he addresses basic questions about the role of police in relation to crime and how it is produced, literally, by the patrol officer. Crime is also seen as the primary basis of police legitimacy, which in turn enables the police to engage in broad surveillance and information-gathering. The author's conclusions about the nature of policing and his discussion of the implications of proposals for reform of police, will generate better-informed deliberation in political and public decision-making and in the general study of sociological theory.

This report discusses resource allocation issues that affect patrol operations and demonstrates some of the mechanisms available for resolving them. The authors suggest that managers use the report to select the method most suited to their department's situation. Specifically, the report focuses on calculating the number of patrol officers needed to satisfy departmental service-delivery objectives and distributing those personnel across shifts and geographic boundaries. The report's five chapters are organized to guide the reader through the processes involved in patrol planning, from issue development through the resolution of single and multiple issues and modification of the patrol plan. Also addressed are the concept and benefits of patrol planning, fundamentals of analyzing a patrol plan, analytical techniques, and key planning steps for resolving resource allocation issues. Exhibits and tables are included. Additional sources of information are appended.

This textbook instructs patrol officers in their roles and responsibilities as first responders, with attention to new and evolving threats and responses to incidents that have broadened the scope of responsibility of the patrol officer. The first of the five parts of the book contains four chapters on patrol officer's preparation and conditioning. These chapters focus on the importance and features of mental and physical fitness and preparing for various police encounters, some of which may involve a fight for survival. The four chapters of Part 2 address training and equipment. The chapters discuss the principles of combat shooting, the specifications of intermediate rifles for use in patrol work, specialty impact systems that can be used as less-lethal force options, and first responders' recognition of explosives. Part 3 consists of three chapters on various types of patrol procedures: the use of police dogs in patrol operations, vehicle stops, and building searches. The four chapters of Part 4 consider patrol responses to critical incidents. One chapter instructs patrol officers in the responsibilities of first responders at the scene of a hostage/barricade/suicide incident. A second chapter describes the tactic of "immediate action/rapid deployment," which is recommended for patrol officers who are the first responders to a violent attack in progress that involves multiple actual and potential victims. A third chapter describes the planning and implementation of procedures for a unified command when multiple agencies are responding to a mass disaster. A fourth chapter focuses on knowledge and procedures used by first responders in their handling of disasters caused by terrorists' weapons of mass destruction. The three chapters of Part 5 instruct patrol officers in preparing for civil litigation that alleges violations of constitutional rights due to officer actions.

Comparison of 80 female police and 80 male recruits during the first four months of patrol duty. In early 1972, police Chief Jerry V. Wilson of Washington, DC began to hire and assign to regular police patrol duties a substantial number of women. This report also noted the performance of 27 policewomen who were reassigned to patrol duties. The instruments used to measure effectiveness were official records, ratings, accounts of observers riding in patrol cars, anonymous police attitude surveys, and interviews with members of the public who had received services from the police. It was found that the women had substantially the same assignments as the men, but were assigned more senior partners. New women and new men made approximately the same number of arrests and were rated about the same in general patrol skills on Chief Wilson's survey. Unsigned surveys, however, showed negative attitudes toward policewomen on the part of patrolmen, both before and after assignment of women to patrol, and a rating of 'less competent' by captains, lieutenants, and sergeants. Police service given by both men and women was equally acceptable to citizens who rated both groups highly for their attitudes, respect for citizens, and their ability to handle a variety of situations. In the four months treated by the report, the new officers had been involved in few situations involving violence or potential violence. In those few situations there was little difference between men and women.
