    Anything by Plato or Aristotle. The classics have much to offer if you give 'em a chance.

    You don't need those unhelpful people at Barnes and Noble....Just go to www.half.com and order your books there. Much cheaper and a man will bring the books right to your house.

    The Street Survival series. Some of the tactics are bit dated in the older books, but the underlying principles are rock solid.

    On Killing and On Combat by Lt Col Grossman. These should be required reading at all academies.

    If your looking for a historical perspective on law enforcement, I suggest the following books,

    Commissioner Roosevelt by H. Paul Jeffers
    Slave Patrols by Sally E. Hadden
    Keeping the Peace by Robert A. Harvie

    I used all of these in my college class and they gave an outstanding overview of how law enforcement has changed over the years.

    You don't know how to find these books at a Barnes and Noble? Maybe you should start rethinking your law enforcement career.

    Surviving Street Patrol: The Officer's Guide to Safe and Effective Policing by Steve Albrecht

    Force Under Pressure: How Cops Live and Why They Die by Lawrence Blum

    Barnes and Noble may carry them in the store, but you can find them all at their website or at amazon.com

    1), New Centurions
    2). Choir Boys
    3). Onion Field (True story).
    4). Glitter Dome
    5). The Blooding. (True Story)
    6). Lines and Shadows
    Wambaugh isn't the only author who writes great cop books, he's my favorite though. For more technical/tactical reading, do a Google Search. Any decent library should also have some good books on law enforcement.
    The above are excellent selections. I'd add to the list the below non-fiction:
    1) The Anatomy of Motive (John Douglas/Mark Olshaker)
    2) Blue Blood (Edward Conlon)
    3) Official Negligence (Lou Cannon)
    4) Homicide Special (Miles Corwin)
    5) The Killing Season (Miles Corwin)
    6) Small Sacrifices (Ann Rule)
    7) Helter Skelter (Vincent Bugliosi)
    8) On Killing (Lt. Col. Dave Grossman)

    Books to read??

    Does anyone have any books that they recommend to someone interested in law enforcement? Books covering any topic related to law enforcement would be great.

    Thanks
