Additional Book Details

is book is a "how to" manual for rural law enforcement personnel. Chapters begin with a brief review of scholarly literature related to the chapter topic.

The book provides readers with proper procedures/tactics to be used in performance of their duties, including how rural law enforcement officers should deal with: 1) the community, residents, businesses, and political leaders; 2) specific crimes and criminal offenders, and 3) issues that confront them both personally and professionally.

Additionally, the book uses quotes from actual interviews with rural law enforcement officers and supervisors, as well as with the public. Interviews were conducted in five regions of the country Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Northwest and Southwest in order to include a regional perspective and look at the similarities and differences among these rural areas of the country.
