In recent years, law enforcement has suffered a number of tactical fiascoes. Officers and agencies have been the subject of civil and criminal sanctions, public confidence has deteriorated and lives have been lost. Unlke most tactical books, which teach tactics as a "skill set," this book emphasizes an intuitive application of fundamental principles. These principles have evolved over centuries of tactical opeations and form a body of "sound doctrine." Heal not only presents a distillation of the more than ninety tactical texts, but provides an insightful and compelling call for rethinking tactics of law enforcement. Assuming no prior experience or understanding of tactical matters, Heal draws from everyday life such as competitive games, driving, or planning a vacation to show how to reconceptualize a difficult situation. Because of the fundamental concepts Heal explores apply to all types of emergencies, Sound Doctrine is suitable for not only law enforcement, but firefighters, private security, and other emergency responders.

Charles “Sid” Heal is a retired Commander from the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department with nearly 33 years of service in law enforcement, nearly half of which has been spent in units charged with handling law enforcement special and emergency operations. Sid has earned three college degrees and is a graduate of the California Peace Officer’s Standards and Training, Center for Leadership Development, Command College, and the FBI National Academy. He is the author of Sound Doctrine: A Tactical Primer, and An Illustrated Guide to Tactical Diagramming, as well as more than 120 articles on law enforcement issues. He has appeared on numerous television newscasts and documentaries, and been quoted in many periodicals and newspapers. Additionally, he has been a featured speaker at numerous conferences in Canada, Germany, England, Scotland, Ireland, Israel, Brazil and Argentina, as well as throughout the United States.
