Force Under Pressure: How Cops Live and Why They Die
by Lawrence Blum
Book Description: Lawrence Blum describes the sources of danger, injuries, and victory to police officers in a down-to-earth, readable style. Blumâ€ôs main point is that there are missing "ingredients" in the training and socialization of police officers. In his book, these ingredients include techniques and tools to condition the officerâ€ôs decision-making and concentration during conditions of emergency; internal controls necessary to maintain the will to survive; and aids that will prevent officers being defeated by any threat. Blum offers tools to help police officers cope with unanticipated or rapidly changing encounters.
