"Arrest-Proof Yourself will teach you everything you need to know about dirty cops, racial profiling, probable cause, search and seizure laws, your right to remain silent, and much more. This how-not-to guide will keep you safe and sound all year long." --Zink magazine What do you say if a cop pulls you over and asks to search your car? What if he gets up in your face and uses a racial slur? What if there's a roach in the ashtray? And what if your hot-headed teenage son is at the wheel? If you read this book, you'll know exactly what to do and say. More people than ever are getting arrested—usually for petty offenses against laws that rarely used to be enforced. And because arrest information is so easily available via the Internet, just one little arrest can disqualify you from jobs, financing, and education. This eye-opening book tells you everything you need to know about how cops operate, the little things that can get you in trouble, and how to stay free from the hungry jaws of the criminal justice system. It is now updated with new and important information on the right of the police to search your car; on guns, knives, and self-defense; and on changes in surveillance methods. Dale C. Carson was an FBI field agent, a SWAT sniper, an instructor at the FBI academy, and a Miami police officer who set Florida records for felony arrests. He is currently a criminal defense attorney. Wes Denham is the author of Arrested.

Eddie Cruz grew up in a tough neighborhood in Brooklyn. Crime, gangs, and drug use were commonly witnessed in his day-to-day life. But what made for a challenging childhood transformed Cruz into a naturally skilled law enforcement agent, and by the time he turned twenty-six, he had been promoted to detective. Using the knowledge he gathered over his years in the undercover narcotics division and as a private investigator, he created Surveillance, an easy-to-use and comprehensive guide. The private sector differs greatly from general law enforcement, and this instructional guide provides clear, honest, and lighthearted insights into what makes surveillance work such a unique pursuit.

Surveillance is the must-read instruction manual for all levels of expertise, from beginners to seasoned investigative veterans. Discover what type of strategy and planning is essential when preparing to begin surveillance work. Find out what equipment is best suited for the tasks at hand and why they can help you succeed.
