Protective Operations: A Handbook for Security and Law Enforcement is designed as a reference for law enforcement and security organizations tasked with protecting the welfare of an individual or groups of individuals. To be effective and professional, protective operations require the incorporation of a variety of skill sets. However, many departments and jurisdictions have only limited resources and training available. Filling this void, the book identifies issues particular to local law enforcement and the private security teams that may be called in later and offers suggestions and guidance for confronting high-threat scenarios as well as the more mundane protective details.
