Police officers work in partnership with the public and are in the front line in the fight against crime and the fear of crime (Holdsworth, 2008). It is important for the police officers to have a strong sense of situational awareness, not only to stay on top of investigations, but also for their own safety and well being. Police officers have a very heavy load upon their shoulders mainly due to the fact that a great majority of the citizens safety rests within their hands. Some of the jobs tasked to officers are as follows: enforce the law, investigate crimes, apprehend offenders, reduce and prevent crime, maintain public order, ensure community safety, provide emergency and related community services, and protect the fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals (Schmalleger, 2009).
