Abstract:

This book covers the suggested procedures for the execution of the variety of tasks required of the patrol officer. Since the effectiveness of law enforcement agencies is closely tied to the capabilities and understanding of individual patrol officers, it is important that these officers be well trained in professional police skills. The patrol operation emphasizes such skills in connection with the police patrol function. The numerous tasks which the patrolman is called upon to perform while on duty are examined, and procedures are suggested for their execution. The techniques of gathering evidence, conducting interviews, and writing reports are explained. Details regarding the investigation of crime scenes are covered, such as the principles of investigation, crime scene protection, and sketching techniques. The many aspects of an arrest are explored - stopping felony suspects, searching arrested persons, searching vehicles, the use of hand cuffs, and the transportation of prisoners. Guidelines are provided for responding to specific calls such as domestic disturbances, suspicion of a prowler, and burglary. Each chapter concludes with review and discussion questions (the answers appearing in the appendix), and an annotated list of suggested reading material.
