Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
At a time when there is so much controversy over the use of force by police officers it is easy to forget that every day tens of thousands of policemen and women engage in millions of interactions with the public that are aimed at protecting the peace and fighting crime. It is the story of some of these officers that Ellen Labrecque describes in this slim book. Using a picture book approach, the author focuses her attention on the day-to-day duties that typify police work. Labrecque combines her concise text with numerous color illustrations depicting law enforcement officers in the field. The author also briefly describes some of the attributes that potential police officer candidates should possess in order to be successful in this important line of work. This book may be a valuable resource in the area of career awareness in particular for students with any interest in law enforcement and all it entails. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck; Ages 7 to 10.
