The Power of Field Contacts  

September 1, 2006

By Dan Pasquale

Contact Knowledge  

August 1, 2006

By Dan Pasquale

Everyone has their own list of local "Good Guys To Know." While it's great to have a guy on call to get the best restaurant recommendations and a killer deal on that new truck, it can be just as useful in your career of law enforcement.

Good Riddance  

August 1, 2006

By David Griffith

Shots Fired: Tulsa, Oklahoma 10/13/2002  

August 1, 2006

By Dean Scoville

Officer Darren Bristow of the Tulsa (Okla.) Police Department came close to avoiding the entire episode. But isn’t that usually the case?

By Mike Detty

I drove from my home in Tucson to the SHOT Show in Las Vegas this year—it’s a scenic drive that takes a little more than seven hours. Entering the city, I passed a large police motorcade that was just beginning on the other side of the highway.

August 1, 2006

By Scott Smith

It seems many manufacturers are determined to cover all of a user’s needs in one tool. However, if your overloaded pocket tool is roughly the size of a Snap-On mechanic’s box, the odds are it will be too cumbersome to carry all the time. What is needed is a knife and tool you can easily carry that still provides you with all the basics.

Knock Notice After Hudson  

August 1, 2006

By Devallis Rutledge

Never mind the headlines and the editorials proclaiming that the Supreme Court did away with the knock-and-announce requirement for execution of search warrants in the recent case of Hudson v. Michigan. The court did no such thing.

By Bryn Bailer

Cheyenne is a city with a relatively low crime rate, averaging one or two homicides a year, and is home to residents who seem to appreciate the work officers do.

August 1, 2006

By Dave Smith
