Working Informants  

May 1, 2007

By Dan Pasquale

Informants can provide a wealth of information. However, that information can come at a price if you’re not careful how you deal with them. Too many officers fall into a few common traps with informants, leading to bad cases, blown operations or personal complaints against them.

Shots Fired: Salt Lake City, Utah 02•12•2007  

May 1, 2007

By Dean Scoville

Sitting there, Hammond became dully aware of banging emanating from elsewhere in the mall. He thought it odd that mall construction should be taking place at such an hour. But as he neared the center of the mall, he looked down to his left from the second-floor walkway. That’s when he saw bloodied bodies lying on the ground below.

The Head Butt  

May 1, 2007

By Michael T. Rayburn

One only need look back at soccer’s World Cup series of 2006 and the devastating head butt delivered by French player Zinedine Zidane to Italy’s Marco Materazzi to realize how effective this tactic really is. Although you may not possess the timing or the athleticism of a professional soccer player, the head butt is still a devastating tool for anyone—including law enforcement.

Vehicle Impounding  

May 1, 2007

By Devallis Rutledge

If the court finds that the Constitution was violated by a vehicle impound, the existence of an authorizing statute or policy may not be enough to save you and your agency from civil liability and suppression of resulting evidence.

DPMS Panther Arms LRT-SASS Rifle  

May 1, 2007

By Scott Smith

Simply put, the LRT-SASS is an AR-15 on steroids. It is larger in size, larger in caliber, and heavier in weight. The LRT-SASS I used for this review arrived in a padded “gun case” with the owner’s manuals, two 19-round magazines, one LRT with four position handguards with covers, Mangonel front/rear flip-up sights, a sling, and a Harris bipod—all in all, a ready-to-use package.

Police Product Test: C More Systems Tactical Red Dot Sight  

May 1, 2007

By Scott Smith

C More Systems' Tactical sight is designed to meet the requirements of a sight for daily duty use. The sight, a tubeless heads-up model designed to mount on a flat top AR, comes with an A2-type iron sight so the dot and iron sights can be co-witnessed.

The Thin Blue Line  

May 1, 2007

By David Griffith

The great British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli famously said, "There are lies, damned lies, and statistics." It's a funny line, one that was later quoted by Mark Twain. But the truth is that statistics don't lie. They are just subject to interpretation, and their truth is in the eye of the beholder.

The Thrill of the Chase  

May 1, 2007

By Dave Smith

One of the most canine-like drives I have ever felt is the urge to chase, to pursue, to catch. I must confess to an odd primal thrill I always felt when a miscreant took off running. I wish I could say my mind thought "Tally ho!" in a thick British accent.

Chevy Tahoe: Large and In Charge  

May 1, 2007

By Lori Connelly

Contrary to some rumors, size does matter. This is just one of the many things the 2007 Chevy Tahoe has going for it. The Tahoe makes a strong impression. While test driving the PD-equipped model for this article, I had many people stop to take a long look and ask me questions about it.
