Police procedures for responding to calls involving special situations
Police officers as the principal public safety persons respond to a host of emergency situations, some ordinary others quite unusual (Ortmeier, 2006). In each of these situations, the responding officer is expected to either solve or at least contain the situation. Inevitably, an officer will be called or while on patrol respond to a situation they have never experienced (Ortmeier, 2001). In other instances the situation may be usual but requiring special attention owing to the circumstances. These situations are referred to as special situations and there are corresponding procedures for each situation.
