Killed in the Line of Duty

In The Line Of Duty [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Killed in the Line of Duty by N.A Book Summary:

The Federal Bureau of Investigation's Uniform Crime Reports Section selected and analyzed 51 incidents of police officer killings in order to evaluate the psychology of the offender, the behavior of the police officer, and circumstances in which the police officer lost his or her life. The study was conducted over a 3-year period; the 51 incidents resulted in the death of 54 police officers and involved 50 offenders. Results demonstrated that, while no single offender profile could be established, most killers of police officers had been diagnosed as having some type of personality disorder. Behavioral descriptors of victims were frequently similar in that they were good-natured and more conservative than their fellow officers in the use of physical force. The incidents themselves revealed that killings were often facilitated by some type of procedural miscue (e.g., improper approach to a vehicle). Type of assignment, circumstances at the scene of an encounter, weapons involved, and the environment in which events occurred all played a role in the preponderance of police officer deaths in the South. The report presents extensive information on the victims, offenders, and incidents studied. It identifies personality types of offenders, provides guidance on how individuals of a given personality type interact with authority figures, and offers approaches to interrogation. The report also points out specific areas where law enforcement training and procedures may be improved. Appendixes contain the study methodology and a description of personality types.

All In The Line Of Duty

In The Line Of Duty [Pdf/ePub] eBook

All In The Line Of Duty by Amy Hudson Book Summary:

In a hot, sun scorched English valley, a young male is found dead. A few days later in Austria, another young male is found dead. Is there a connection between the two and if so, what is it? DCI Mark Morgan from Hipton, England, together with Chief Inspector Zweig, from Mayrhofen, Austria, try to solve what might be a double murder. But there seems to be precious little to go on and progress in the case is agonisingly slow until a letter is discovered in an attic of a house in the small Austrian village of Schwendau. Could this letter hold a clue about the deaths of the two young men? What seems to be a simple communication is far from that. It is a voice from the past, a letter which hints at a very dark time during the Second World War. There are references to Himmler and concentration camps, but this letter was never posted, so is it just a distraction for Morgan and Zweig, or is it crucial evidence in their quest to track down the killer? Time moves on and still the case is beset by complications and unknowns until a third murder is committed, back on English soil. Can Mark Morgan connect this murder with the other two and if so, what are the implications? The case goes from being an intriguing puzzle to a complex series of problems which need to be solved in a race against time, in case the killer strikes again. On the home front, Mark Morgan has problems of his own. His relationships seem to be taking a nosedive out of all control. Shocking news about his father finally comes to light and his brother is off to Russia for who knows how long, sending the family into confusion. This novel can be enjoyed as a stand-alone story in its own right with a dramatic plot, full of complex twists and turns, or it can be read as a sequel to ‘The Quiet Deaths’ where the central characters are introduced; chiefly DCI Mark Morgan and his family and friends. As in the first book, there are plenty of back stories where the reader can find out what’s new in the lives of the central characters. There is a lot of humour in the novel for the reader to enjoy, despite the dark tone of much of the main plot. The novel will leave readers with a lot to think about, especially in the context of war, family, trust and loyalty and raises some thorny issues to grapple with.

Line of Duty - The Real Story of British Police Corruption

In The Line Of Duty [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Line of Duty - The Real Story of British Police Corruption by Wensley Clarkson Book Summary:

A fascinating insight into the true history of British police corruption, for fans of the hit BBC 1 drama. For more than a century, police officers used their uniforms to control and bully criminals, which in turn led to wholesale bribery and corruption. From Victorian times up to the 1950s, this crooked atmosphere tainted the UK police image of the 'friendly Bobby'. Then came the 1960s and 1970s when the Great Train Robbery and other bigtime heists changed the rules of the 'game' forever. It was like the Wild West out there. No one knew who were the good guys and who were the bad guys anymore. By the early 1980s, corruption was endemic amongst London's vast force of detectives. It was only now that Police commissioners across the nation finally started to tackle endemic, across the board corruption. The hit BBC show has brought these stories back to the fore and in The Line of Duty - The Real Story we go behind the contemporary headlines to explore the real inspiration behind the hit show, looking back at the history of corruption in the police, and the anti-corruption units that were set up to sniff out the bent coppers among the good. Referencing real-life historic and notable cases and people, from a range of sources and first-person interviews, The Line of Duty - The Real Story tells the truth behind the fiction, and its hard-hitting impact on real life modern policing.

Mostly in the Line of Duty by H. Liebaers Book Summary:

IT ALL STARTED with the American Library Association (ALA) which wanted to celebrate its centenary in 1976 at its headquarters in Chicago. With five American librarians and non-librarians I was invited to give a centennial paper. I declined the flattering offer because I had left the profession and had no time to do any research. I added innocently, however, that I would be delighted to speak out of personal experience, for instance on the impor tance of American librarianship in my professional life. This pro posal was accepted; I delivered the lecture and my text was printed in Libraries and the Life cif the Mind. Before I had read my paper in Chicago I received a request from the International Federation of Library Associations (IFLA) to contribute with Recollections of a President to the fiftieth anniver sary volume of IFLA (1927-1977). For reasons with which I agreed IFLA did not publish my paper in full, such as it is given here as chapter 10. I am confident that no one will compare the two versions in order to try to find out \\That has been left out in the earlier printing. Two other papers have appeared in German Festschrifts, one for Kurt Koster from Frankfurt-aiM (chapter 7) and one for Gerhard Liebers from Munster (chapter 5) the former being focussed to accord with the interest of the recipient on medieval Dutch manuscripts, the latter, for similar reasons, on library buildings.

Flight Attendants Lost In the Line of Duty

In The Line Of Duty [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Flight Attendants Lost In the Line of Duty by B. Elizabeth Chabot Book Summary:

“The pilots were attempting to return to Honolulu but with the failure of both engines on the right wing of the UAL 747, combined with massive structural damage, there was a very real possibility that they would be required to ditch. The thought of ditching into the ocean in the dark of night is daunting. The flight attendants could have secured themselves in their jump seats but instead stood in the aisles to prepare their passengers. The roar of the air rushing by at a speed of 190 to 200 knots was deafening in the cabin. The flight attendants could only “mime” the instructions for passengers to look at their Safety Cards and to demonstrate the donning of life vests.” “The Aloha 737 was severely damaged, literally now a convertible and was in emergency descent with speeds of 280 to 290 knots. The roar of the wind was deafening. The forward flight attendant had been sucked out of the cabin as it ruptured. The aft flight attendant was seriously injured. The mid flight attendant, suffering minor injuries and being the only one able, rather than securing herself in her jump seat, she crawled up and down the aisle calming her passengers and assisting the injured.” Flight Attendants Lost offers a fascinating look into what went on inside the airplane from actual aircraft accident and incident case studies spanning decades and countries. The book covers the intense training, the ongoing vigilance, the behind the scenes team work and the committed actions of flight attendants in emergency situations. It uncovers the complexities of aircraft safety design and makes sense of the reasons behind safety rules and regulations making this book an educational must read for air travellers. Flight Attendants Lost is not only an eye-opener but is a reassuring read that will make you look at flying differently. It is also a beautifully written memorial tribute to the hundreds of flight attendants who, over the years, have given their lives In the Line of Duty.

Crossing the Line of Duty

In The Line Of Duty [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Crossing the Line of Duty by Neil Root Book Summary:

The Metropolitan Police of the mid-twentieth century, in particular The Flying Squad and Obscene Publications Squad, has been described as ‘the most routinely corrupt organisation in London’. Larger-than-life characters such as Ken Drury and Alfred ‘Wicked Bill’ Moody routinely fraternised with underworld figures, paid off witnesses and struck dodgy deals to get their man – regardless of whether he was innocent or guilty. And the problem went far beyond a couple of ‘bent’ coppers: in the end, fifty officers were prosecuted, while 478 took early retirement.Using Metropolitan Police files obtained under Freedom of Information, which have not been accessed since the 1970s, author Neil Root can finally tell the real story of how the Met became systemically corrupt, and how Sir Robert Mark, who became commissioner of the Metropolitan Police in 1972, finally cleaned it up.

In the Line of Fire

In The Line Of Duty [Pdf/ePub] eBook

In the Line of Fire by Cheryl Regehr,Ted Bober Book Summary:

In the wake of disaster emergency responders are first on the scene and last to leave. They put concern for the lives of others over concern for their own lives, and work tirelessly to recover the bodies of the missing. Their heroic actions save lives, provide comfort to and care for the wounded and inspire onlookers, but at what cost to themselves? We now know that rescue workers who are exposed to mutilated bodies, mass destruction, multiple casualties, and life-threatening situations may become the hidden victims of disaster. The traumatic consequences of exposure can profoundly impact emergency responders, radiate to their families, and permeate the emergency organization. This much-needed new book, based on the authors' original research and clinical experience, describes the consequences of trauma exposure on police officers, fire fighters, and paramedics. Weaving data collected in large-scale quantitative studies with the personal stories of responders shared in qualitative interviews, this much-needed account explores the personal, organizational, and societal factors that can ameliorate or exacerbate traumatic response. Stress theory, organizational theory, crisis theory, and trauma theory provide a framework for understanding trauma responses and guiding intervention strategies. Using an ecological perspective, the authors explore interventions spanning prevention, disaster response, and follow-up, on individual, family, group, organizational, and community levels. They provide specific suggestions for planning intervention programs, developing trauma response teams, training emergency service responders and mental health professionals, and evaluating the effectiveness of services provided. Disaster, whether large-scale or small, underscores our ongoing vulnerability and the crucial need for response plans that address the health and well being of those who confront disaster on a daily basis. In the Line of Fire speaks directly to these emergency response workers as well as to the mental health professionals who provide them with services, the administrators who support their efforts, and the family members who wonder if their loved one will return home safely from work tonight.

New Mexico's Finest

In The Line Of Duty [Pdf/ePub] eBook

New Mexico's Finest by Don Bullis Book Summary:

Nearly 200 men and women have died while working as peace officers in New Mexico since 1846, the year that New Mexico became a part of the United States. This book tells each officer's story. A number of these law officers died in the violent days of New Mexico's frontier in the years between the end of the U. S. Civil War and the turn of the century in 1901. Among them were sheriffs, their deputies, town marshals and members of posses. Outlaws far outnumbered the forces of law and order, and lawlessness was a significant factor in keeping New Mexico a territory for two-thirds of a century (1846-1912). Since the beginning of the 20th century, officers have been assassinated, shot down in gunfights, and murdered in cold blood. Others have died in motor vehicle accidents of one kind or another (and one was run down by a cowboy on a horse), and while accidents are not as dramatic as gun-battles, they are equally as important. The names of some law officers are familiar, like former Sheriff Pat Garrett who was assassinated in 1908 or State Police Officer Nash Garcia who was ambushed in 1952. Others are less well-known, like Taos County Sheriff Stephen Louis Lee who was killed during the Taos Revolt of 1847 or Sandoval County Sheriff's Sergeant Joe Harris who was killed by a career criminal in 2009. Farmington Officer Victoria Chavez was the first female New Mexico peace officer to die in the line of duty. She was shot to death in 1992. Since then, others have met similar unfortunate fates. Sheriffs and their deputies have suffered the greatest number of fatalities at 70; the New Mexico State Police Division of the Department of Public Safety is next with 30 officers killed in the line of duty since 1937. Among municipal police departments, Albuquerque is the largest, and has suffered the most on-duty causalities at 14 since 1886. No matter the details, each of these officers is deserving of recognition, and commendation for offering up the ultimate sacrifice: his or her life.
