"The Last Place You'd Look"

"The Last Place You'd Look"

Former police detective Carole Moore interviewed the families of dozens of missing persons across the county and around the world to compile The Last Place You'd Look, which also focuses on the efforts of police, search and rescue, nonprofits and volunteer organizations. According to the National Crime Information Center (NCIC), there are about 100,000 active, open and unresolved missing persons cases that sit on the books in the U.S. each day. The numbers are similar in Canada, where annually more than 60,000 children are reported missing. Additionally, in the U.S. alone there are more than 40,000 John and Jane Does in cemeteries and morgues across the country, still waiting to be identified. The anguish of having a loved one vanish is unthinkable, yet thousands of families face this heartbreak every day. The Last Place You'd Look provides searchers a starting point and gives readers an overview of "the club no one wants to belong to."

What happens when a non-custodial parent kidnaps her son? Or a college student vanishes after a night out with friends? Or a middle-aged man seemingly drowns in calm waters? What do family members, friends, and law enforcement do when a beloved goes missing? Here, Moore explores an array of missing persons' scenarios, using real life stories, to uncover the various ways that people go missing, the efforts made to retrieve them, the emotional fallout for family and friends, and the difficulties and challenges such cases present for all involved. She covers parental abductions, intentional disappearances, stranger abductions, the missing and mentally ill, runaways, foul play, and other situations where people go missing. In addition, the criminal justice approach to missing persons is discussed, as Moore looks at the science of missing persons (DNA, forensic dentistry, etc.), resources for family and friends, national organizations such as the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and other groups involved in searching and recovering loves ones. Here, readers will discover how people are found, how missing persons' cases are treated, and how and why some stories have happy endings and others do not.

Book "Mass Shootings: Six Steps to Survival 2nd Edition"

Product From Community Safety Institute (CSI) Publishing

Examining more than 60 mass shootings that have occurred in the United States since 1980, this book focuses on the actions taken and decisions made by those who survived these horrific attacks.  Armed with this new information, the old axiom “fight or flight” is dispelled or at least modified for this new breed of killer. Fight by yourself and you are almost assuredly going to join the ranks of the victims if not the overall body count; flee and present a target for the killer or draw his attention, and chances are you will not make it out alive.

Fighting Cyberbullying in Schools: What Law Enforcement, Schools and Parents Can Do

Product From Thomson Reuters

Social media and technology have changed the very nature of bullying. As a result, parents and victims also have changed how they respond, increasingly taking their cases directly to law enforcement rather than notifying school officials first. In fact, a 2013 Thomson Reuters survey of American parents indicated more than one third of parents would turn to law enforcement first if their child were the victim of cyberbullying.

Management of Aggressive Canines for Law Enforcement

Product From THINK DOG CONSULTING

Management of Aggressive Canines for Law Enforcement is the first book of its kind to address the important topic of human/canine interactions specifically for law enforcement. With over 40 percent of households in the United States having dogs the likelihood of an officer encountering a dog during their duties is very high. Officers in tense situations need quick and effective methods to assess dog behavior and employ response options. These responses need to be within the accepted use-of-force parameters which are becoming more stringent. This book gives officers a working knowledge of dogs and suggests situation-appropriate actions to remove the dog as a threat allowing the officer to focus on the real threat, the human.
