Officer Survival for Probation and Parole Officers

Book Cover: Officer Survival for Probation and Parole Officers

Officer Survival for Probation and Parole Officers by Scott Kirshner is a comprehensive doctrine on officer survival skills for those who supervise offenders in the community. Community Corrections Officers also known as Probation and Parole Officers supervise both juvenile and adult offenders who have a demonstrated and documented history of breaking the law. The reality is that most offenders, even violent offenders, will eventually be released from jail or prison and may end up on either probation or parole. Community Corrections Officers often supervise offenders with a history of violence, domestic violence, sex offenders, seriously mentally ill, gang offenders, members of hate groups, etc. that will not hesitate to harm you if the offender feels that their freedom is in jeopardy.

Probation and Parole Officers have been killed and seriously injured in the line of duty. It is critical that probation and parole officers train officer survival skills in a manner that is realistic, dynamic, and under stressful conditions.
