    There are three Books in my Unit at all Times. Policeman's Bible, On Combat, and The State Code book. I've found all three useful in different situations.

    True Blue- Stories told by the men who lived them. is a Good read also, not necessarily for training but Just a good reminder of the good and bad in this line of work.

    I found On Combat to be more directly related to police.

    I looked at both "on killing" and "on combat", I plan on getting both of them but can only get one right now. Would anyone recommend one over the other to get started?

    marty33, they have no problem with killing cops! Just check how many officers killed in the last few weeks.

    "Street Survial" by Charles Remsberg. That book had an impact on me as a new patrolman because it drove home the message that some bad guys have no problem with trying to kill a cop.

    Officer Down, Code Three (Brooks) , Signal Zero (by Kirkham). Both older, Officer Down lays out the basics of officer Survival. Signal Zero is the tale of a college CJ professor who becomes a cop, and learns that what he had been teaching was 100% WRONG!

    Training at the Speed of Life ~ Ken Murray

    Most of the book deals with scenario based training, but the first 1/3 deals with instructor basics and how important training is to the officer and to his agency.

    I keep a Bible and On Killing in my gear bag.

    Force Under Pressure: Good book on dealing with the stress and mess of LE
    Surviving Street Patrol: Good book on both tactics and being effective on the streets
    Tactics for Criminal Patrol: Dated, but still some useful information.

    The Penal Code of whatever state you want to work in and the legal opinions of that State's Attorney General and regional District Attorneys.

    The above books are nice reference, but a good majority of this job is about explaining to people WHY you are NOT going to do anything about non crime they called you on.

    As said, On Combat and On killing. I also like Criminal Interdiction by Steven Varnell. Excellent book about officer safety and going beyond the traffic stop.
