Manual

The manual can be an excellent training tool for new officers.  Everything they need to know for field operations should be in the pocket manual. The manual should be no more than fifty pages long, with print that is large enough to read in low light.

There should be a list of your radio codes, and frequently used penal and vehicle codes.  Municipal codes with a short explanation should also be in the book.  Every time the large manual is updated the pocket manual should be updated too.

In today's modern world, an app that has all this information would also be an excellent tool.  The app should not replace the pocket version, but should be a copy of it.  Information is power, and having information disseminated to your officers in different formats is a way to increase your power; that's what the SGT Says.
