Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
The Calibre Press group and its contributors did an outstanding job in 1985. This book was necessary have for any police officer who wished to better themselves through survival techniques. This book established a norm for "how to" with applicable photographs, diagrams and true live stories.

As the book relays information form deaths and survivals of fellow law enforcement officers in educating the reader, these tactics are now outdated. Tactics that are more refined have been learned and taught. If you are buying this book for that - you are a generation or two behind.

It was a Cadillac during its time and hence the rating. It is one of those books that will sit proudly with its two earlier edition sisters much like an older encyclopaedia sometimes sits on the shelf.

HASH(0xb60c46e4) out of 5 stars If you are in uniform you need to read this book Aug. 21 2005
By Michael W. Quinn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As the former supervisor of the Minneapolis Police Academy I made Charles Remsberg's books mandatory reading. Nobody has done a better job of explaining the hows and whys of uniform patrol.

If you work as a uniform cop, security officer, or military police officer your education is not complete until you read Charles Remsberg's books.

HASH(0xb60c4aec) out of 5 stars The Patrol Procedures Bible June 23 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is one of a series of three by CALIBRE PRESS. This series is primarily what my academy traing in patrol procedures was based on. If you don't read these three books you are cheating yourself (and your loved ones) out of some information that could save your BACON! (pun intended)

HASH(0xb60c4918) out of 5 stars IMPORTANT CORRECTION Nov. 26 2000
By Charles Remsberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Actually, this book is NOT out of print. Like its companion volumes, Street Survival and The Tactical Edge it is restricted to law enforcement personnel only. You can order it directly from the publisher: Calibre Press, Inc., 666 Dundee Rd., Suite 1607, Northbrook, IL 60062. (800) 323-0037. Be prepared to establish your law enforcement affiliation.

HASH(0xb60c4bd0) out of 5 stars It is truly a shame that this book is out of print. Jan. 6 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Every police officer in America should read every word of this outstanding manual and train and use these tactics. No other manual contains so much practical and tested tactics than the Tactical Edge. Mr. Remsburg has made an incredible contribution to police officers all over the world.

HASH(0xb60c4f84) out of 5 stars A great gift for anyone in Law Enforcement. Jan. 10 2013
By Mike Reingold - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an old book, written in the 80's but it gives you some great tactics that the academy does not teach you. Police work goes from boring most of the time to life threatening in a matter of seconds. This book gives some great tips. The problem with rural police work, (I was NYPD) is that it is quiet most of the time, this book teaches you to be alert, look for things you may not normally notice. I had a habit of writing license plates down just in case, and it pays off. Son of Sam was caught, not by good detective work, but by a street cop who wrote a parking ticket. If you know someone going into police work, this book or others like it make great gift.

Remember when seconds count, the cops are only minutes away !!
