Volume I – Human Relations Tips for Effective 21st Century Policing


When police and the public cannot communicate effectively, there will be no collaboration and no growth. In the current climate of tension and misunderstanding, E Bev Doc explores the power of positive engagement in improving community safety and relations.


Broken into four sections, this book addresses the basics of law enforcement, outlines the expectations of a community, provides effective policing strategies, and lays out proper judicial procedures. The author provides tips and ideas for generating a better understanding of individuality, culture, and religious freedoms to improve officers’ daily interactions.


With her many years of policing, administration, research, and education experience, E Bev Doc has developed in-depth curriculum and actionable outlines for creating social change. She encourages introspection and evaluation of personality and predisposition for those in law enforcement and provides new tools for engaging on different levels within the community.


Whether you are a police officer, part of a law enforcement organization, a criminal law major, or a community leader, the tips in this book can help you create large-scale shifts on local and national levels.




Volume II – Understanding the Humanity of Policing is about the people who police; it is about the people police serve. It is about giving the profession a face, a heart, and a personality, focusing on the person as more than a member of a profession and the resident as more than a response to a call.




Volume 3—The ‘Clothing’ of Effective Policing: Cultural Competency, Spirituality and Ethics continues my discussion about the humanity of policing. For this writing, I give attention to the spiritual, intellectual, and emotional dimensions of humankind.


I use clothing metaphorically to describe more than something to cover body parts. Clothing refers to preparation of the heart, soul, and mind for tasks associated with policing.


I came up with the idea while studying scripture, substituting the word clothing for armor, both words understood to refer to protecting the body and mind-set. In the Bible, clothing and colors were symbolic.
