I thought that John DOUGLAS's books, like Mindhunter, were pretty decent.

I also just finished reading NO LIGHTS, NO SIRENS, the corruption and redemption of an inner city cop by Robert Cea.

It tells the apparent true story of a new york cop and the illegalitites he had to go through to say one step ahead. I'm not sure if I beleive this as being true or not yet. If anyone else has read it I'd love to hear your comments

This thread is great by the way, I'm constantly looking for good police related books to read.

Serpico wasn't too bad.

That John E. Douglas' Mindhunter sure looks interesting.

We should do a little book exchange within Blueline.

From the Cop Shop by Peter V. MacDonald. Hilarious Tales From Our Men and Women of the Badge.

Some really funny stories with lots of Canadian content and some names you will recognize from Blue Line.

Far Beyond Defensive Tactics by ? Christensen - Paladin Press.

Author was on a bit of an ego trip but a good read nonetheless.
It's not how hard you hit, it's how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done.

The Essential Krav Maga by Christopher Philippe.

Self-defense techniques for everyone.
It's more practical than theory but still interesting.
