Police officers are the protective barrier standing between the public on one side and lawlessness on the other—the so-called "thin blue line." A high-stress job, officers face daily interactions in stressful situations where the element of risk is always lurking. An officer's main duty is to maintain law and order within a community, which means they are regularly face to face with citizens and out patrolling the streets. This book looks at the duties of police officers in crime prevention, the apprehension of offenders, and emergency situations.

Police Officers

“This latest batch of titles from the World’s Most Dangerous Jobs series is so dangerous, a police officer seems the safest choice. Although each volume has a picture-book length and features oversize pages, the content is gritty, reflecting the topic in both words and pictures. Large color photographs, taken in war zones and disaster areas with workers shown in their protective gear and weapons prominently displayed, are ample. Meanwhile, the tone is clear and factual, with many primary-source quotes pulled out and featured.... these are compelling reading for reluctant readers and risk-takers alike.” — Susan Dove Lempke,, 10/12
