Book Review
Howdunit: Police Procedure & Investigation

Not everything you see on your favorite crime show is accurate. In fact, a lot of it is flat out wrong. Police Procedure & Investigation helps you get your facts straight about the inner workings of law enforcement.

With a career in law enforcement that spanned nearly two decades, author Lee Lofland is a nationally acclaimed expert on police procedures and crime scene investigations who consults regularly with best-selling authors and television producers. Now you can benefit from his years of experience with Police Procedure & Investigation.

This comprehensive resource includes:

  •  More than 80 photographs, illustrations, and charts showing everything from defensive moves used by officers to prison cells and autopsies
  • Detailed information on officer training, tools of the trade, drug busts, con air procedures, crime scene investigation techniques, and more
  • First-person details from the author about his experiences as a detective, including accounts of arrests, death penalty executions, and criminal encounters

Police Procedure & Investigation is the next best thing to having a police detective personally assigned to your book!


"Police Procedures & Investigation" Reviewed

A fantastic writer resource

Until now my main involvement with police and law enforcement has been brief. Calls from me regarding noise complaints, or them calling me about damages to my car didnt give me any insights into the realities.

This book covers a wide range of topics:

  • the history of policing in America, training and equipment
  • structures of police forces & their procedures
  • definitions of particular crimes & forms of evidence
  • trial procedures, sentencing and prison life

To say that this book opened my eyes on many aspects of the criminal and police worlds would be an understatement.

Would I recommend this book to fellow writers, or readers interested in police procedures and tools? Definitely!

It gave me answers to questions that had arisen in the process of researching my current novel project. A lot of ideas about where I could take certain scenes came about from reading this book, and I look forward to exploring them with fresh insight.
