Police officers are generally called to a dispute when the parties involved cannot deal with an escalated situation. Not only must the responding officers have the legislative and procedural knowledge to safely intervene, they must also have the skills to communicate, counsel, mediate, advise, protect, and console in conflict situations — and perform these feats every day on the job.

Written for students working toward a profession in policing, the third edition of Conflict Management in Law Enforcement exposes students to relevant situations that they will encounter in their future policing career, and provides examples of safe procedures to follow to enhance the likelihood of successful interventions. Author James Pardy introduces two common problem-solving modes, CAPRA and PARE, and applies these models to scenarios described in the text. By understanding how CAPRA and PARE are used, students will learn how to relate that knowledge to situations they encounter in their professional future. Pardy discusses other key topics, including intervention techniques; recognizing risk; officer safety; child, spousal, and elder abuse; psychological disorders; suicide intervention; and victims of crime.

The third edition also includes self-study exercises — taken from actual occurrences — that will help students apply the knowledge and skills that they have gained throughout the course.
