For courses in police field operations, police systems, and law enforcement procedures.

The authoritative text in police field operations.

The result of over two years of revisions, Police Field Operations, Eight Edition brings this essential text up to date with the most recent developments in police practices and procedures. For years, Adams has served as the textbook standard for police departments and academies and academic programs across the country. Written from the perspective of a working police officer, the text presents the real-life scenarios an officer is likely to encounter while on-duty. It focuses on community policing, details how and why certain procedures are used, and provides instructional techniques from leading police academies.
