Overview

Psychological Services for Law Enforcement / Edition 1

In 1989, the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies mandated that every police authority seeking accreditation with the Commission must have access to psychological support and consultation. This timely text offers an extensive and current overview of the services psychologists can offer to law enforcement. Organized under major subject areas—assessment, intervention, consultation and training—it deals with such issues as officer recruit selection, fitness for duty evaluations, stress counseling, hostage negotiation, investigative hypnosis, psychological profiling, management consultations and much more.
