From the Publisher:
Protective Operations: A Handbook for Security and Law Enforcement is designed as a reference for law enforcement and security organizations tasked with protecting the welfare of an individual or groups of individuals. To be effective and professional, protective operations require the incorporation of a variety of skill sets. However, many departments and jurisdictions have only limited resources and training available. Filling this void, the book identifies issues particular to local law enforcement ? and the private security teams that may be called in later ? and offers suggestions and guidance for confronting high-threat scenarios as well as the more mundane protective details.
The author?s decades of training, research, and experience provide invaluable tested and proven protocols for keeping subjects safe in a hostile environment.
