This book is a nice informational book put together by a former detective. You can check it out on Amazon.
Here's the blurb from Amazon:
Not everything you see on your favorite crime show is accurate. In fact, a lot of it is flat out wrong. Police Procedure & Investigation
helps you get your facts straight about the inner workings of law enforcement.
a career in law enforcement that spanned nearly two decades, author Lee
Lofland is a nationally acclaimed expert on police procedures and crime
scene investigations who consults regularly with best-selling authors
and television producers. Now you can benefit from his years of
experience with Police Procedure & Investigation
This comprehensive resource includes:
Police Procedure & Investigation
than 80 photographs, illustrations, and charts showing everything from
defensive moves used by officers to prison cells and autopsies
information on officer training, tools of the trade, drug busts, con
air procedures, crime scene investigation techniques, and more
details from the author about his experiences as a detective, including
accounts of arrests, death penalty executions, and criminal encounters
is the next best thing to having a police detective personally assigned to your book!"
I personally really like this book. It's put together really well. It explains procedures, jail time, types of prisons, types of police divisions, etc. If you want a book for some basic police information, this one is a good one.
