Honestly anything that can help them develop professionally as LEOs. The range of topics can be wide, if something is recommended here I will check it out and if I don't think it fits I won't use it. I'm hoping though that I can get some good suggestions from other experienced officers/agents.

If you are into OMGs at all, Under and Alone is an entertaining read and informative at the same time.

MarsMan - LOL @ your new sn, B...

I suggest:
On Combat: The Psychology and Physiology of Deadly Conflict in War and in Peace  
On Combat: The Psychology and Physiology of Deadly Conflict in War and in Peace by Dave Grossman and Loren W. Christensen

I don't agree with everything written there, esp regarding videogames, but it's a great read.


Along the same lines, I was gonna recommend "On Killing." Same author etc.
