Any suggestions for good police books to read ?

Couple of my favourites:

Stalling for Time - Gary Noesner (really enjoyed this book). The "Waco" show on Netflix is based on part of this book. Haven't seen the show, but the book covers more than just Waco.

That was hard to watch. Even when he went unconscious they don't even check his pulse. Sad.

Yeah, that was extremely horrific to watch. I don't think it was the knee on the neck that did it but most likely his entire body weight on the guys chest. It appears he went into cardiac arrest. Just awful all around.

Sickening and sad for his family to see him die in such disgraceful way ! 4 of them got fired and I hope justice will be served.

"FORMER NYPD BOSS: "It defies logic, common sense, training, and police procedures. There was no resistance…This is atrocious. This was an abusive use of force, it was a killing of someone who should not have died.""

it just shows that idiots work everywhere, what is unforgivable is that they were 4 and not even one acted professionally to avoid this ...

Let’s get this back to discussion related to RCMP/RCMP application related comments. If someone wants to continue a discussion of what happened in Minneapolis they can feel free to start a separate thread about it.

Any further off-topic posts in this thread will be deleted without notice.
Don't call it a comeback...

Speaking of getting things back on topic...

There are a few of us who are in the security clearance stage. I found this resource on the Treasury Board website I thought I'd share. Appendix B has a lot of info about the different levels of Security Clearance for the Government and gave me some insight as to why things take as long as it does. That recent whiney long post asked why RCMP members needed Top Secret clearance. Well, I should hope that if you are carrying inside a secure Government building, you need to have a decent security clearance first. Simple really. I have no knowledge of the internal workings of the RCMP, but I'm sure members can be assigned to different roles and waiting for security clearance at that stage would be wasted time.

Does anyone have any knowledge how this works with municipal partners when working with them? Do they have to get some sort of temporary security clearance or is their clearance through the Province?
