Mastery: Advancing Police Patrol
This chapter deals with the concept of mastery. It is a concept that is discussed infrequently in law enforcement and, particularly, police patrol.

They perform their job at a consistently high level, continue to study and apply learning, hone their skills, avoid complacency, overcome adversity, and show disdain for mediocrity.
