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.

Let's face it; you don't expect your home to be invaded when you're asleep in your bed.  You don't expect your kids to be bullied or kidnapped when you send them off to school.  You don't expect to be shot at while sitting in a movie theater with your family.  However, bad things happen to good people every day.

In response, most people believe they would dial 911 while others might use a gun or karate chop to try and solve the problem.  Allow me to intoduce a third option, one that up until now has been available only to the privileged few.

Instead of being blindsided and forced to react to these incidents, what if you could see them coming and prevent them from happening?  Akin to preventive medicine - a holistic approach to healthcare in preventing disease, Preventative Defense or PreFense is a holistic approach to your personal security.

You are the key to stopping such preventable violence - learning what the professionals know about ensuring your personal security will give you the decisive advantage in avoiding or stopping a threat long before it escalates to a physical attack.  The protective measures found in this book put you in the driver's seat and firmly in control of your environment instead of at its mercy.
