As the tactics and technologies of law enforcement change, so do the tactics being used by criminals to evade capture. This book was written to provide law enforcement with the knowledge and tools required to safely capture suspects who attempt to flee from the police. It addresses the trends and tactics that criminals are using and examines proven techniques in how to contain, search, and capture suspects on the run. The focus is on whether to chase or contain, how to set up perimeters, management of the incident, physical conditioning, use of airborne resources, canines, communications, tactical deployment, training, and most importantly incident debriefing techniques. Following this, the criteria of the decision to contain, foot pursuit versus containment, responding officers, hiding locations, and training to meet the challenge are discussed, including the need for a team effort from start to finish. This knowledge, along with training and practice, gives the advantage to the officer, particularly during critical incidents where the capture of the suspect is paramount. The audience for this book begins with the police: training academies, managers, and local, state, and federal police departments.

Few empirical studies have focused on women in prison. In the last few years, though, a number of studies have demonstrated that there are fundamental differences between male and female prisoners in an ever-changing penal system. Consequently, there has been a need for more comprehensive studies of female offenders for three primary reasons: (1) imperative research gaps remain to be bridged; (2) the female prison experience is not constant; and (3) prison rates for female offenders, especially minority offenders, have increased considerably in the last few years. A central goal of this book, then, is to provide a balance to the existing literature and research on female prisoners in the United States and, to an extent, abroad, focusing primarily on female offenders and using data gathered from the Wisconsin Department of Corrections. The book utilizes a comprehensive investigative approach by equating the experience of female offenders by the totality of circumstances within an historical, institutional, political, and ideological context. The critical objective is to offer an inclusive analysis of the things that are considered by female inmates to be the most significant before, during, and after their incarceration, as a way of better understanding the reasons that lead to their first incarceration as well as subsequent incarcerations. By reading this book, the reader will have a greater understanding of the many challenges facing female inmates, as well as the relationship between inmates, correctional officers and, by extension, society in general. Also provided is a series of policy recommendations throughout the book, particularly in the concluding chapter and epilogue.

This book has a dual purpose: to identify problems faced by people who teach in correctional institutions and to propose solutions for those problems. The intent of this book is to help both new instructors as well as current ones perform their jobs effectively. The book is divided into three parts. The first part introduces the reader to the field of correctional education, describing correctional efforts in America, the kinds of facilities, the inmate populations, and the controversies, including advocates and critics, over providing educational opportunities. A description is provided on the kinds of educational and rehabilitation programs, including the varieties and sources of teachers and administrators. Part two explores the teaching process and how students are analyzed on their abilities, learning disorders, gender, ethnicity, gang membership, length of imprisonment, and reasons for enrolling in educational programs. Each chapter is divided into two major sections: the first section studies the perspective and the second section concerns problems and solutions. Each problem is posed as a brief case study that includes the nature of a particular problem, factors affecting decisions about what a teacher might do, and one or more proposed solutions. Part three summarizes key concepts from the previous chapters and speculates about the state of correctional education in the years ahead. It will be of interest to those who contemplate a career in correctional education, those who are already in correctional education, or those who simply want to learn what teaching in a prison, jail, or juvenile facility is all about.

Patrol objectives for the police officer and supervisory personnel, and routine patrol procedures. The uniformed officer who patrols the street is the 'hub of the constantly turning wheel of law enforcement.' the material is presented with the understanding that, although operational plans are standardized, the police officer must continuously exercise discretionary powers. Individual chapters discuss performance expectations and records utilization. It is stressed that these duties must be carried out accurately and objectively. Additional functions which are covered concern control and riot prevention, field interviews, and police community relations. Again, it is emphasized that there is considerable leeway for individual interpretation. Other chapters focus on the initial phases of crime investigation and planning for emergency calls (crimes in progress). This illustrated manual should be beneficial to introductory law enforcement courses or police training sessions. Each section includes exercises and study questions, suggested semester or term projects, and selected references.
