Police Officers to the Rescue

by Nancy White

Part of a Series: The Work of Heroes: First Responders in Action.

Police officers prevent crimes, protect the public, and are often the first to arrive on scene after an accident. This volume informs readers that becoming a police officer requires a lot of training, hard work, and bravery. It’s not an easy career, but it’s an important and heroic one. The book opens with an exciting story about an officer in action before delivering more detailed information. The wide-ranging text covers police vehicles, teamwork and communication, and 9/11 and other tumultuous events. Color photos reflect the content and a glossary, reading list, bibliography, Web site address, and an index will help report writers.
