The path of the warrior Nov 10, 2006
I picked this up after finishng Dr. Jetmore's Police Seargent Exam Prep Guide. Jetmore is a 20-year law enforcement veteran and former Police Commander. The focus of this book is on ethics as it relates to personal and professional development. This book ancient "codes of honor" and recounts stories of actions that police office took in their daily duties and the related values conflicts, psychological and physical stresses. It is a challenging read, but it raises interesting questions.
Jetmore Hits it on the Head. Mar 17, 2002
I couldn't put this one down. I've been looking for something that addresses the things I've been trying to deal with on the job, and this book nailed it!
It doesn't give you all the answers, just the right encouragement to keep looking.
I would say this one's a must for anyone in law enforcement or any stressful field.
One of the best Sep 5, 2000
I've read several books on the subject of police ethics. Jetmore's is by far the best. A wonderful combination of research and actual stories from the streets, this books captured my interst from te very beginning. Very insightful.
How do you determine the "right" thing to do? Apr 21, 1999
Dr. Jetmore, a law enforcement veteran of 21 years, challenges students and veterans alike to awaken their souls and become "warriors." Using "war stories" and the "ancient philosophy and code of honor used by King Arthur's Knights of the Round Table," Dr. Jetmore provides a concise yet encompassing work of challenges.
This work recounts stories of actions that police officers take in the daily conduct of their duties, only to be questioned later by the public. Such exposure to values conflicts subject officers to both psychological and physical stress.
Dr. Jetmore challenges all who read this work to "take control of their destiny," and seek professional and private development. He even speaks the previously "unspeakable" inner sould reactions to years of affiliation with traumatic events.
I suspect many in law enforcement will disagree with Dr. Jetmore. All the reason those that are tasked with protecting us need to read and review his work.
A challenging book on multiple levels,yet worth the effort. Apr 20, 1998
Larry Jetmore, a retired Hartford, CT Police Commander and current university educator, seeks to reawaken the ethical bearing of working police officers.
In a short book, less than 140 pages, that is liberally sprinkled with both inspirational quotes from philosophers and pertinent "war stories" Jetmore challenges his readers to recapture their "shadow".
"To become a warrior you must turn your back on the consensus of others, open the gate, cross the bridge and begin the inner quest of your heart and spirit."
In a time when ethics and ethics training are "hot topics", Jetmore has contributed a challenging and substantive work that will stand the test of time. It is an actual contribution to the ongoing dialogue within the profession.
