In this book, veteran San Diego Police Officer Steve Albrecht advises fellow officers of proactive measures they can take on a routine basis to improve their odds of going home in one piece. Whatever the challenge at hand, be it handcuffing noncompliant suspects, preventing suspect escapes, surviving group attacks, fighting on the ground, dodging bullets, protecting homicide scenes or dealing with the media, Albrecht has time-tested advice for handling it safely and effectively. In addition, on topics such as managing meth freaks; responding to domestic violence calls; avoiding AIDS, TB and other killers during searches; attending to the elderly; investigating rapes; and more, he offers invaluable insight on balancing compassion and integrity with aggressive, professional policing. This book will serve as a valuable learning tool for those street cops who, regardless of the size of their beat, agency, county or city, are out there on the front lines every day, putting their lives on the line while trying to do the right thing.
