Opponents of two-officer patrols argue that paired officers are more likely to be distracted during patrol and tend to be overconfident in hazardous situations, which presumably increases officer victimization risk. Advocates of two-officer patrols, however, claim they provide “built-in” cover for an arresting officer and increase officer acuteness of observation (Boydstun, Sherry, and Moelter, 1977:7-8; Wilson, Brunk, and Myer, 1990:270). Thus, the idea that two-officer units provide greater protection for police than single-officer units is compatible with the notion of “social guardianship” in opportunity theory (Felson, 1998:53-54; Miethe and Meier, 1995:51), and it may be that potential police assailants are more reluctant to initiate an attack against paired officers than lone officers (Wilson, Brunk, and Myer, 1990:270).
According to Grennan (1987:7879): The view of most police executives in the United States is that women, for the most part, do not belong on patrol because of their lack of physical strength and their inability to maintain an authoritarian presence in the face of challenges that the public can present to police officers. For the most part, the police managers’ view is that female officers create a danger to other officers and to the public when they get involved in a violent situation. ” 40 The Murder of Police Officers These perspectives suggest that increased hiring and deployment of woman as patrol officers not only increases the risk of victimization of female police, but that of male officers as well.
Specifically, the percentage of time 20 The Murder of Police Officers devoted to academy self-defense instruction ranged from a low of two percent to a high of 20 percent, while actual hours of instruction ranged from a low of 10 to a high of 148 hours (Strawbridge and Strawbridge, 1990). Variation at the extremes may affect officers’ ability to gain control of resistive and combative suspects and defend themselves from attack. If so, officers with little training may be less able to prevent situations from escalating into armed confrontations, and therefore may be at greater risk of being seriously injured and killed (Scharf and Binder, 1983:161).
