According to the description of The Eyeball Killer, "Death was an occupational hazard for every hooker who worked Dallas's depressed south side. That's why police weren't surprised to find the body of prostitute Mary Lou Pratt shot to death in December of 1990...until the discovery that sickened even the seasoned coroner: the young woman's eyes had been cut out."

This 3rd edition of School Safety 101 will aid administrators, staff, students, and community stakeholders in learning how to create a culture of safety in their schools. It includes the RAIN (Respond/Assess/Isolate/Notify) model designed for schools, and introduces a new ESCAPE crisis-response model designed after the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut."


According to the description of Neighborhood Watch 101: Protecting, "For over four decades Neighborhood Watch has been synonymous with community safety. NW has provided law enforcement agencies throughout the country with the additional "eyes and ears" needed to help keep our nation safe from crime and secure from terrorism. Neighborhood Watch 101 is a guide for both law enforcement officers who work with NW initiatives, and for citizens who are interested in volunteering or leading a local Watch group."
