Hell in High Water  

November 1, 2005

By David Griffith

About 24 hours before Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast Capt. John Bryson of the New Orleans Police Department was in a McDonald’s in the city’s Ninth Ward buying a cup of coffee. Next to him in line was a woman and her four children; the youngest was a one-year-old baby.

November 1, 2005

By David Griffith and Melanie Hamilton

The last few years it has seemed that the exhibitors at the International Association of Chiefs of Police were escaping from a computer expo.

Special Deliveries  

November 1, 2005

By Dave Young

For generations law enforcement has been seeking the perfect round, the so-called “magic bullet.” The ideal police weapon is a munition that could be fired at a distance to temporarily incapacitate a suspect so that he or she could be taken into custody without injury to either the suspect or the arresting officer. It would work every time, and it would be a substitute for deadly force.

Standing Their Ground  

October 1, 2005

By David Griffith

Most of us—Thank God—will never experience anything as emotionally, physically, and spiritually shattering as Hurricane Katrina. Short of an atomic bomb detonation or a biological attack, Katrina is as bad as it gets.

Shots Fired: Valparaiso, Indiana 07/15/2002  

October 1, 2005

By Dean Scoville

At the sight of the silver patrol car with the bumble bee stripe, the children came running. They came running not with the usual curiosity of kids asking for perfunctory activations of lights and siren, but to tell Officer Todd Kobitz of the Valparaiso (Ind.) Police Department about the man who had harassed them.

By Jim Gregg

Although I consider point shooting to be more natural than shooting with sights, there are definitely some tricks to it.
