According to Joseph J. Truncale, of the American Society of Law Enforcement Officers, “The author is clearly at odds with the goals and objectives of competition shooting as compared to survival shooting.  He feels that present police training does not focus enough on the type of shooting to survive on the streets.  Police trainers who have the responsibility to provide their officers with realistic and practical methods to survive on the street will want a copy of this very informative manual.” now hosts 817 police officers (representing 367 police departments) and their 1728 law enforcement books in six categories, there are also listings of United States federal law enforcement employees turned authors, international police officers who have written books and civilian police personnel who have written books.
