Understanding Human Behavior for Effective Police Work

By Harold E. Russell; Allan Beigel | Go to book overview

Summary

In this chapter we have discussed alcoholism and other forms of drug abuse, including their characteristics, underlying factors, and physical and psychological effects. Abuse of these drugs results in abnormal behavior, and therefore police officers frequently become involved.

The role of officers in handling problems associated with drug abuse is a difficult one at best. But in dealing with drug abusers, officers must maintain a professional attitude toward those against whom most of society prefers to turn its back. They must have sufficient knowledge of the characteristics of commonly abused drugs and their effects so that they can give first aid to people who are suffering severe symptoms from their use, ensure that they receive necessary emergency medical care, and, if necessary, act as a liaison between them and available treatment facilities.
