The unique content in this volume emphasizes key elements of police psychology as it relates to current issues and challenges in law enforcement and police agencies and is an essential reference source for practicing police psychologists, researchers, graduate-level students, and law enforcement executives. The book covers a vast array of topics, including emerging ethical issues, police suicide, police interactions with the mentally ill, mass casualty events and first responders, and so much more. [...] Multiple copies of this book should be on the top shelf of every police resource center in the nation.
