"American policing has been preparing to effectively deal with terrorism and weapons of mass effect for a very long time. But in the post September 11th world, our educational and training efforts must be significantly enhanced. This field guide has emerged as the best educational tool on the market. Every police officer should leave with a copy in their duty bag for a quick on-scene reference." Dr. James O'Keefe, St. John's University, Retired Director of Training, NYPD " A succinct, well organized first responder guide for our thin blue line. It is practical information in an easy to read and understandable format. I would rate it a "must have" for every officer." D.C. Jim Dozier, J.D., Ph.D., Executive Director Texas Commission on Law Enforcement and President IADLEST "Maniscalco and Christen have scored again with a comprehensive guidebook that no field officer or commander should be without. Drawing on their extensive experience and expertise in planning for and actually managing some of the worst terrorist incidents, the authors provide an indispensable tool to deal with them." Peter S.Beering, Terrorism Preparedness Coordinator , City of Indianapolis "Terrorists have years to plan their acts of violence, whereas, law enforcement has only minutes to respond and seconds to make the right decisions. The Terrorism Response: Field Guide for Law Enforcement provides a logically displayed, quick reference for taking the correct responsive action. I highly recommend that every law enforcement officer carry one on duty." Steven T. Kernes, Director, Pacific Northwest Law Enforcement Training Center " In the demanding and changing world of public safety this field guide is a must read for all public safety officers. It goes beyond the response to terror and addresses on the scene crises management procedures in a clear, concise manner. It is a great tool for the working officer." William F. Walsh, Ph.D., Director, Southern Police Institute, University of Louisville
