The Handbook of Police Psychology represents the contributions of over thirty police psychologists, all experts in their field, on the core subject matters of police psychology. Police psychology is broadly defined as the application of psychological principles and methods to law enforcement. This growing area includes topics such as screening and hiring of police officers; conducting screening for special squads (e.g., SWAT); fitness-for-duty evaluations; investigations, hostage negotiations; training and consultation, and stress counseling, among others. The book examines the beginnings of police psychology and early influences on the profession such as experimental investigations of psychological testing on police attitude and performance. Influential figures in the field of police psychology are discussed, including the nation’s first full-time police psychologist who served on the Los Angeles Police Department, and the first full-time police officer to earn a doctorate in psychology while still in uniform with the New York Police Department.

Pro všechny z vás, v jejichž životě hraje zbraň významnější úlohu, přinášíme jedinečnou publikaci, která vám pomůže dosáhnout takové úrovně znalostí a dovedností, aby zbraň co nejlépe posloužila účelu, pro který jste si ji pořídili. U někoho může jít o rekreační střelbu, u jiného je hlavním motivem soutěžní činnost, další pak spatřují v krátké palné zbrani nejvhodnější prostředek pro svoji ochranu. Autoři, zkušení střelci a střelečtí instruktoři, se zabývají použitím střelné zbraně v reálném střetnutí. V úvodu seznámí čtenáře se základním střeleckým vybavením a dále text rozdělili do tří fází střelecké přípravy. Fáze I zahrnuje základní průpravu v zacházení se zbraní, ve fázi II jsou detailně probírány komplexní techniky dynamické střelby a těžištěm knihy je fáze III, zaměřená na střelecko-taktické dovednosti včetně praktických cvičení, psychickou přípravu a další aspekty řešení sebeobranných situací. Kniha je doplněna více než stovkou fotografií a osmistránkovou barevnou přílohou.
