For Introduction to Policing courses.

In times of crisis, law enforcement professionals do not have the luxury of forgetting anything...their professional careers may depend on their efficiency and effectiveness during a critical incident. The Managing Disorder CD Rom provides a series of “Check Lists” for every incident command function from Commander to Victim Services Coordinator. These comprehensive check lists can be immediately accessed to ensure that nothing is overlooked during the chaos of an incident. The wealth of information only begins there. From the “First Seven Steps to Controlling Chaos” to “Termination of Incident Command” and “After Action Reports” this is a must have resource for every law enforcement Supervisor, Chief, and Commander. This comprehensive resource has been meticulously compiled over the past three years by two veterans of the Columbine school shooting. It is used in teaching Incident Command for CALEA, Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies nationwide.
