Texas Police News is fortunate from time to time to be offered books and manuscripts to review,  by authors who are either in law enforcement, have served in law enforcement or have close, personal relationships with law enforcement.  Often we review these books from the time they are rough drafts, to completed manuscripts to the final, printed book.
  
We are happy to share these with our readers.
  
The books on this list fall into a very exclusive category -- books not only worth reading, but books worth owning.  Some of them may even change the way you look at the world of police officers and law enforcement.
  
Unless otherwise noted, the summaries are excerpts from the book -- either the cover flaps or the introduction.  Some books contain a link to the appropriate page at Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, other book outlets or the publisher where you may purchase it.

It has been said that about the only thing two K9 handlers agree about is what a third handler is doing wrong.  Whether in search and rescue or cadaver and human remains detection, there's a variety of opinions in how handlers and dogs train and work.  K9 Teams: Beyond the Basics of Search and Rescue and Recovery uses solid science and the experience of dozens, if not hundreds, of handlers to explore the issues teams and organizations commonly encounter in training and operations.

Vi Hummel Shaffer is a professional K9 handler who has worked in search and rescue and recovery, including mass fatality recovery, for over 27 years.  Along the way she's attended dozens of seminars, learned from some of the top trainers in the world, and has spent countless hours in the field working with a wide variety of agencies.  In K9 Teams, Vi compiles the questions most often asked, the issues handlers struggle with, and some of the best suggestions handlers share with one another.

K9 Teams examines dog selection, training methods, professional certification, team dynamics, post-traumatic stress disorder, and much more.  Everyone working with or interested in detection dogs needs this book.  Those in law enforcement, fire departments, and other emergency response agencies will also benefit from the book by learning what K9s can-and cannot-reliably do.
