Police Crisis Intervention. A Selected Bibliography.
Ketterman, Thomas, Comp.; Kravitz, Marjorie, Comp.
This annotated bibliography focuses attention on the techniques and training methods used by police during family crisis intervention. The introduction emphasizes the importance of this special aspect of police training, and mentions the different possible target audiences such programs may have: they may be directed to all recruits, to all incumbent officers on a rotating basis, or to a new category of specialist in conflict management. It is also stated that despite the different approaches used in the materials, they share the common goals of reducing arrests, minimizing repeat interventions, and reducing the number of casualties. All of the documents cited are part of the collection of the National Criminal Justice Reference Service. (Author/BP)
