In this fascinating book, Nigel Allsopp lifts the lid on the world of police dogs, examining the vital roles they play both in Australia and around the world. Despite the numerous high-tech devices now available to law-enforcement officials, 'K9's - as they're known in the trade - remain an indispensable part of police work in a range of fields, notably terrorism and border protection. K9s may sometimes be sent into difficult and dangerous situations, but this is never done without care and concern, for at the heart of their role is the intimate and symbiotic relationship between dog and handler. K9 Cops explores the history, training and current use of police dogs, as well as considering what future dogs have in modern law enforcement. It also includes an A-Z of police canine units in 47 countries. For all police and military personnel, K9 Cops is an informative, must-read book. For the rest of us, it is an entertaining and heartwarming account that dog lovers the world over will enjoy.

An acclaimed poet, Rachel Rose never expected to spend her nights careening along the roads in high-speed chases or searching the woods for armed suspects. Yet once she decided to meet the people who devoted their lives to police K9 units, she found herself signing up for the ridealongs, training runs, and other challenges that the courageous people - and canines - face on a daily basis. In this book, Rose introduces readers to police dogs and their handlers around in the United States, Canada, Britain, and France (where their group's official name translates as "the dog lover unit"). She's there to catch a criminal with Constable Matt Noel and Blackie; to patrol with Sheriff Gene Davis and Gunner; and to witness the tragic funeral of Constable Dave Ross, where K9 Danny follows the coffin, looking for his master.With insight, humor, and awe, this book reveals the feats that these human and canine teams accomplish, and the emotional and physical risks that they take for one another, and for us.

Con Man In December 1989, in upstate New York, Gary C. Evans, 35, a master of disguise and career criminal who had befriended David "Son of Sam" Berkowitz, began weaving a web of deadly lies. Evans told a female friend that Damien Cuomo, the father of her child, had deserted her. Of that he could be certain, since he'd killed Cuomo, and subsequently struck up a ten-year romance with the woman while tricking her into believing Cuomo was still alive. Law Man Evans first met New York State Police Senior Investigator James Horton in 1985, when Evans fingered Michael Falco, 26, as the brains behind their theft team--yet failed to mention that he'd murdered him. Then, two local jewelry dealers were killed. In 1997 Tim Rysedorph, 39, another old friend, went missing. Was Evans responsible? Horton launched a nationwide manhunt to uncover the truth. End Game For more than thirteen years, Evans and Horton maintained an odd relationship--part friendship, part manipulation--with Evans serving as a snitch while the tenacious investigator searched for the answers that would put him away. After Horton used Evans as a pawn to obtain a confession from a local killer, Evans led Horton in a final game of cat-and-mouse: a battle of wits that would culminate in the most shocking death of all. . . 16 Pages Of Revealing Photos

The last days of colonialism taught America's revolutionaries that soldiers in the streets bring conflict and tyranny. As a result, our country has generally worked to keep the military out of law enforcement. But according to investigative reporter Radley Balko, over the last several decades, America's cops have increasingly come to resemble ground troops. The consequences have been dire: the home is no longer a place of sanctuary, the Fourth Amendment has been gutted, and police today have been conditioned to see the citizens they serve as an other—an enemy. Today's armored-up policemen are a far cry from the constables of early America. The unrest of the 1960s brought about the invention of the SWAT unit—which in turn led to the debut of military tactics in the ranks of police officers. Nixon's War on Drugs, Reagan's War on Poverty, Clinton's COPS program, the post–9/11 security state under Bush and Obama: by degrees, each of these innovations expanded and empowered police forces, always at the expense of civil liberties. And these are just four among a slew of reckless programs. In Rise of the Warrior Cop, Balko shows how politicians' ill-considered policies and relentless declarations of war against vague enemies like crime, drugs, and terror have blurred the distinction between cop and soldier. His fascinating, frightening narrative shows how over a generation, a creeping battlefield mentality has isolated and alienated American police officers and put them on a collision course with the values of a free society.

Police Heroes honors and celebrates those members of America's police force who take the oath to protect and serve seriously. These men, women, and K-9 officers are asked to put their personal safety aside for a greater good on a daily basis, but sometimes the call of duty is above and beyond even their expectations. You're about to meet some remarkably courageous individuals, all of whom acted bravely in the most trying, life-threatening situations. Who among us can truly second guess the life-or-death decisions that police officers may be forced to make on any given day, despite the demands and frustrations of the job? The criminals want to put the officers out of action, while law-abiding people are fearful of receiving a traffic ticket. The politicians often exploit law enforcement issues for personal and professional gain, and everyone--including the media--Monday-morning quarterbacks the lightning-fast decisions that must be made in the field. But it's easy to be critical when you're not the one forced to react in seconds. What would you do if you came face-to-face with a kidnapper who's holding a twelve-year-old girl at gunpoint? Alone in the Alaska wilderness, could you arrest five armed men? Would you risk your own life to save a methamphetamine manufacturer from dying in a fire he intentionally set to avoid being served a warrant? These are just a few of the heroic acts you'll read about in Police Heroes. Following the destruction of the World Trade Center, Ron Shiftan, who served as deputy executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey from 1998 to 2002, wrote this to the author: "To those who have not come home, we say with conviction that you continue to live on in our hearts and memories." And that is the very essence of Police Heroes-it will inspire you to appreciate the everyday heroes in the law enforcement community and the amazing work they do to keep us from harm and protect our way of life.
