As someone working in the police field I jumped to buy this book for my son and I wasn't disappointed. The author covers many of the functions of police officers & shows both genders positively policing. I did think the end was a little abrupt but I really liked it.

Simple, clear pictures with some fun action sounds. Great introduction to the different facets of police work. No story line. Easy rhymes. Very smooth read. :)

Excellent for young children learning about community helpers. The book gives an overview of many of the roles police officers serve, all in a unstrained rhyme. Bright, clean illustrations are full of action.
Rhyming text and illustrations rich with environmental print introduce preschoolers to police officers and the work they do. Pictures include male, female, African American, mounted and K9 officers.

A little sillier than the firefighting book by the same author but still well done. I especially love the "cops" chasing the burglar who robbed the candy store and is leaving a trail of suckers.

An excellent look at the wide variety of jobs policemen can do. The kids loved hearing about police in boats, riding on horses etc. Part of a Community Helpers unit
I think I liked the rhythm of the Firefighter book better, but my 3-year-old son loves them both, which is the real test for these!
What does a police officer do? Some ride horses, some handle police dogs, motorcycles - who knew?

Illustrations and rhyming text celebrate police officers and what they do.
