When Cops Kill by Lance J. LoRusso

Granted, this is a little bit of a stretch for this list, but hear me out. The author, Lance J. LoRusso, is a former police officer, now attorney who defends police officers. And if you're thinking, "Well, that's cop stuff," you couldn't be more wrong. Whether it's a cop that shot someone, a cop who has been shot, a firefighter who was killed or injured, or a firefighter who was negligent, the basic process for your department's investigation is virtually the same.

This book is very insightful explaining in detail the ins and outs of the internal affairs investigation process. Hopefully, most of you will never need this insight. But as a chief officer in a large metropolitan department, some of the information in this short book has been very helpful to me.
