Annotation: DESIGNED TO HELP OFFICERS MAKE SOUND DECISIONS AND TO REDUCE INJURIES AND DEATH, THIS HANDBOOK PRESENTS GUIDELINES FOR OFFICERS TO ANALYZE NIGHT PATROL SITUTIONS.
Abstract: IT URGES THAT THE INSTRUCTOR SERVE AS A LEARNING FACILITATOR, NOT A LECTURER, AND THAT STUDENTS BE ENCOURAGED TO SUGGEST AS MANY ANSWERS AS POSSIBLE. THE HANDBOOK ALSO SUGGESTS SOME GROUND RULES FOR DISCUSSION, A WAY TO INCREASE STUDENT INVOLVEMENT, AND THE IMPORTANCE OF USING PEER REINFORCEMENT AS A LEARNING DEVICE. IT STATES THAT OFFICERS MAY OFTEN ESCALATE THE DANGER INVOLVED IN A SITUATION BECAUSE THEY WANT TO IMPRESS THEIR PARTNER OR OTHER PEERS. THE INSTRUCTOR, THEREFORE, SHOULD MAKE THE GROUP MORE AWARE OF THE NIGHT PATROL PROBLEMS THEY WILL FACE, SHOULD STIMULATE GROUP CONSENSUS ABOUT APPROPRIATE PROFESSIONAL SOLUTIONS, AND SHOULD HELP EACH OFFICER DEVELOP PROBLEMSOLVING ABILITIES. ROLE PLAYING CAN HELP THE TRAINEE DEAL WITH THE MANY KINDS OF ASSISTANCE CALLS. ALSO DISCUSSED ARE THREE SITUATIONS DEPICTED IN THE ACCOMPANYING FILM: THE PROWLER CALL, THE ROUTINE NIGHT PATROL OF A COMMERCIAL AREA, AND THE ROUTINE TRAFFIC STOP. DISCUSSION QUESTIONS ARE PROVIDED FOR EACH SITUATION, AND THE HANDBOOK GIVES ILLUSTRATIONS OF PROPER POLICE PROCEDURES FOR CAR STOPS. A BIBLIOGRAPHY IS GIVEN. SEE ALSO NCJ-67314. (AOP)
