The Third Edition of "What To Do When The Police Leave" expands on the landmark work of the Second Edition. Written by a victim for other victims and their caregivers, this book offers authoritative and invaluable advice, guidance, and resources for families dealing with the traumatic loss of a family member or friend.

New to this edition are sections on crime scene cleanup, unsolved cases, grief in the workplace, a new chapter entitled "Long-Term Grief: Living The Marathon," and a Foreword by best-selling author Patricia Cornwell.

Finalist in the category of Best First Book in the Publishers Marketing Association's Benjamin Franklin Awards 2000, "What To Do When The Police Leave" is being used by victim assistance programs, clergy, funeral homes, and police departments across North America as they work with and serve the bereaved. It is recognized as one of the most valuable resources available for grieving families.

This one of a kind resource is heart-to-heart practical advice from one who has been through the trenches of grief and loss, encouraging and helping others in their own paths. The victims' voice has never spoken so clearly.

From the Publisher:

"What to do When the Police Leave" is currently being used by victim assistance programs, police departments, funeral homes, and clergy across the United States and Canada. The author's voice is that of one victim speaking directly to another with honesty and authority on a subject in which he has become an unwilling expert.

Tragedy is treated with compassion, determinatino, and above all, hope. Inspirational messages and writings break up the text, giving pause for reflection. Jenkins repeatedly identifies with the reader, sharing a mutual hope for progress and recovery. Suitable for people of all faiths, and general enough to apply to a variety of types of losses, "What to do When the Police Leave" definitively answers that question which every family asks following a death notification, "What do we do now?"

About the Author:

Bill Jenkins is a professor of Speech and Drama at Virginia Union University. After the murder of his sixteen year-old son while on his second day at work, Jenkins assembled the materials which were so vital to him in the first days of his loss into a concise, authoritative, and practical resource to help others.

As time permits, he continues to speak on various victim issues throughout the U.S. and Canada.
