Public safety professionals and emergency responders today face greater threats than ever before in our history. The traditional role of law enforcement has vastly expanded to require extraordinarily broad-based emergency response capabilities. Law Enforcement Responder: Principles of Emergency Medicine, Rescue, and Force Protection prepares homeland security leaders, law enforcement officers, security professionals, and public safety officials for the wide range of emergency responses they must perform on a daily basis.

Law Enforcement Responder explores the vast array of law enforcement demands for emergency responses including resuscitation, trauma, and illness, as well as the essential considerations for special populations such as children and the elderly. The textbook addresses all of the competency statements in the National EMS Education Standards at the Emergency Medical Responder level, as well as additional lifesaving content specific to law enforcement that far exceeds the core curriculum.

Law Enforcement Responder accommodates the tremendous diversity in the modern law enforcement mission by providing current and expert emergency medicine content in a highly adaptable format. Nationally recognized experts present key mission-specific topics, including police officer survival, tactical medicine, executive protection, active shooter response, canine first aid, military medicine, travel medicine, in-flight emergencies, ordnance ballistics, less lethal munitions, incarceration and prisoner care, fire-rescue and hazardous materials, and much more.
