For the past few years there has been an abundance of highly publicized negative citizen/police interactions. Police Officers are required to attend training to help them interact positively with the public; however, there is no training to assist the public in interacting with the police. Rules of Engagement: Mending Citizen/Police Interactions is a game changer. This book informs the public about what the police do, what they should be doing, how to avoid interactions with the police and what to do if those interactions are less than positive. It talks about case law that guides officers in the performance of their duties and why they rarely get prosecuted. It is the public's training guide to interacting with police. This book is a great resource for parents in discussing citizen/police interactions with their children.
