About this book

This book provides the “how to’s” of police patrol, focusing on how officers on the front line perform their duties (covering both skills and techniques), meet day-to-day challenges, and manage the tasks and risks associated with modern police patrol. Drawing on theory, research, and the experience of numerous practitioners, it provides practical daily checklists and guidance for delivering primary police services: 

• Conducting mobile and foot patrols

• Completing a preliminary investigation

• Canvassing a neighborhood 

• Developing street contacts

• Building and sustaining trust

• Delivering death notifications, and more. 

It features interviews with front line officers, as well as both police chiefs and supervisors to examine the role of police officers in the 21st century and their partnership with, and accountability to, the communities they serve. In addition, this book explores how modern policing has evolved by examining the research, innovation, tradition, and technology upon which it is based. It provides new perspectives and ideas as well as basic knowledge of daily practices, offering value to new and experienced police and security personnel alike; students in criminal justice, law and public safety; community leaders; and others involved in advancing police operations and community well-being.

Reviews

“This text provides supervisors and police academy instructors with a new tool to discuss day-to-day functions with new and experienced officers.  It is something we’ve needed for a long time.  It gets to the core of what patrol officers do on a daily basis.” (James H. Lilley, Sergeant, Howard County Police Department (retired))

“If we are going to make progress in advancing police/community relations, we need to focus on patrol officers and the work they do in our neighborhoods and communities.  How they interact with people, handle calls, protect homes and small businesses, influence our children, and solve problems is more important to me than how the police department is organized or how many new programs it initiates. This text gives new perspective on how the officers assigned to our community do their job.” (Stuart M. Brooks, Community leader, Business owner)

“Mastery of Police Patrol provides what we need to help people in other fields better understand the work of police officers.  Politicians, attorneys, university teachers and researchers, community leaders, public health officials, and others draw conclusions about the police often without sufficient awareness of how they approach their routine and extraordinary tasks.  This text provides insight into frontline police operations and how theory and evidence is put into practice.” (Mark Gabriele, Asymmetric Operations Sector, Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Captain, Maryland State Police (retired))
