Force under Pressure: Why Cops Live and why They Die (Blum)

Lawrence Blum describes the sources of danger, injuries, and victory to police officers in a down-to-earth, readable style. Blum’s main point is that there are missing “ingredients” in the training and socialization of police officers. In his book, these ingredients include techniques and tools to condition the officer’s decision-making and concentration during conditions of emergency; internal controls necessary to maintain the will to survive; and aids that will prevent officers being defeated by any threat. Blum offers tools to help police officers cope with unanticipated or rapidly changing encounters.
